Professor teaching students in a classroom.

A Computer Network and System Administration (CNSA) degree will prepare you to work in some of today's most challenging and exciting careers: computer network design, administration, and security. Our graduates are in high demand and receive excellent starting salaries for their ability to design, secure and manage computer networks in all sectors of the economy, including healthcare, retail, insurance, manufacturing, government, and research.

As a CNSA major, you will learn to build and troubleshoot computer networks and manage enterprise systems effectively and securely.

You can tailor your classwork to fit your interests:

  • cybersecurity
  • IT management
  • network engineering

The CNSA program is designed to incorporate challenging "hands on" labs into each of its technical courses.  By providing a lab-intensive program, students learn and obtain experience with technology relevant to industry and have the ability to design and implement advanced technologies.  To make that easier, all of our labs are open 24/7.

CNSA students can also take advantage of highly competitive cooperative education (co-op) and internship opportunities.  These opportunities permit students to receive excellent industry experience in technical and non-technical areas related to their field.

By the time you graduate, you will be well prepared with skills and qualifications that employers are seeking, such as hands-on technology practical applications, teamwork, communication, troubleshooting, and critical thinking skills.
