Computer Systems Technology Program

Program description

The program has a unique focus on wireless and networking technologies and expertise in this field was recognized within the industry when the college was designated as a Cisco Regional Academy for Wireless Networking and Security. In the third year of the program, students will be involved, hands-on, in real-world projects for one or two days per week in conjunction with our corporate partners, making proposals and working in teams to plan projects, set schedules and achieve goals. Students have helped develop IT solutions for hospitals, large corporations and major wireless telecommunications providers, including Bell Mobility and Rogers Communications. Students cover all four courses of the Cisco CCNA Exploration curriculum.

After successful completion, students can receive a certificate from the Cisco Networking Academy for each of the four courses. Students will also be well prepared to write the CCNA industry certification exam, as well as the CompTIA A+, Microsoft Windows Server MCP, Novell CNA and CompTIA Security+ exams. In the third year of this program students prepare for additional certification exams, such as Planet3’s Certified Wireless Network Administrator (CWNA) and Cisco’s CCNA Security.
