What is Computer Networking? Networking involves building computer networks from the ground up.  This involves evaluating protocols, operating systems, hardware components, networking devices, and software tools to make a network run efficiently.  Critical thinking skills are an essential part of monitoring and troubleshooting a network.
    Students entering the Computer Networking Technology major will be given the opportunity to train in a hands-on environment in the field of information technology. The curriculum provides students the necessary exposure to a wide variety of classes and lab environments that will be beneficial to them after completing their Associates of Applied Science degree in Computer Networking Technology.
