Program Description


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.

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 $53,060 for computer network support specialists and $72,360 for administrators, according to 2017 reports from U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. Pay can increase substantially with time and experience.
