Students will conduct experiments where they will conduct, test and debug hardware and software components for computer networks. Students will study and test the standard protocols of LANs and WANs. Students will also analyze the design and operation of micro computer networks, including inter-networking, routers, and network management.
From classroom and lab instruction students will be able to perform duties necessary to manage assigned departmental computing and network resources including technology assessment and planning, systems analysis and design, evaluation and establishment of computing and computer training standards. Students will learn how to coordinate and provides expert technical consultation for the selection, evaluation, purchase, and installation of computing hardware, software, and supplies.
The department will now be able to host a number of research opportunities in the area of software development to meet real world goals and functions. This can help in the development of advanced technology and artificially intelligent systems.
