communications, TCP/IP, Cisco networking, Windows Server, Linux Server
administration and virtual machine management. The Network Security option introduces students to cyber security tools and practices needed to protect computers from ever-present cyber threats. Topics covered include security operations and ethics, Cisco security and computer forensics. (3) The Computer Support option offers training for technical support and help desk positions.
