Network Systems Administration

Most businesses and organizations can benefit from hiring skilled information technology workers. When systems fail, work comes to a halt and productivity suffers. IT workers are essential for the maintenance and troubleshooting required to keep systems operable. IT is an academic discipline that continues to evolve as computers and communication technology change.

One area of information technology is Network Systems Administration, which involves systems such as local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), the Internet, intranets and other data communications systems. People who understand networking can connect users in different locations and help maintain the flow of information that companies use to operate. This could involve maintaining, monitoring, configuring and supporting systems that use various network software and hardware to interconnect systems and platforms into a common data-sharing infrastructure.

Topics in the Network Systems Administration program include network operating systems and network systems design and implementation, explored through classroom theory and practical applications in a laboratory environment. If you have strong problem-solving, analytical and communication skills, the study of network systems administration may fit your skills and interests.
