SECURE A BRIGHT FUTURE.


Add network engineering to your computer skills, and get on a path to a great career that pays.

The Network Engineer certificate program teaches you to design, install, maintain, and repair local area (LAN) networks in residential, business, government, and industrial environments. More emphasis is spent on designing and security systems than in the Network Administrator certificate.

Demand for information technology (IT) workers is high and should continue to grow as firms invest in newer, faster technology and mobile networks. The S.C. annual mean wage is $64,050 for computer network support specialists and $79,400 for computer network administrators, according to 2020 reports from U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pay can increase substantially with time and experience. For example, experienced computer engineers earn $102,350 on average annually in S.C.

The Program

This 27-credit-hour program can be completed in as little as two full-time semesters. Courses include instruction in networking administration, configuration, internet programming, and microprocessors.

The program also includes Windows, Cisco, and Visual Basic programming courses.

Plus, this program is eligible for the S.C. Wins Scholarship, which can pay up to $65 per credit hour.
