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.

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 $55,520 for computer network support specialists and $72,140 for administrators, according to 2015 reports from U.S. Department of Labor Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pay can increase substantially with time and experience.
