With advances in technology, demand for computer engineering specialists is high. As technology continues its speed-of-light evolution in commerce and culture, the theft and corruption of information expands as well. UAT’s Network Security degree prepares students to design networks using diagrams and documentation that secures cyber communication within an organization and throughout the outside world. Students with this cyber security degree develop a comprehensive understanding of how to create, maintain and defend secure networks.
The Computer Technology program provides students with the knowledge and training for a range of positions in information technology, based on the specific course selections of the student. Students in the program have their choice from several standard program options, each with different concentrations of courses from modern areas of computer technology. These areas include: computer programming, networking, system administration, web development, PC maintenance and database management. Graduates of the various options may be qualified, respectively, for entry-level positions in system administration, computer programming, web development or database management, as well as positions as computer support specialists, and network or PC repair technicians. Graduates are also well prepared to continue their education in four-year BS programs in networking, computer science or system administration.
Finally, computer and technology programs are a natural fit for online learning, for the obvious reasons – you learn to program, analyze, and use computers on computers, so why not streamline the process with an online program? If you have access to the technology on your own, there may be no reason to sit in a room of computers and other students.
Technology’s explosive evolution is becoming ever more pervasive in commerce and culture, increasing the need to investigate and analyze digital data and assist in the prevention and prosecution of malicious information, theft and corruption. UAT’s computer forensics degree fully prepares students for this exciting career field in which demand is escalating for graduates with this specialized technology computer forensic degree.
A strong foundational knowledge of network and systems engineering concepts form the base on which the advanced topics for this computer networking degree are built. Key elements of this computer networking degree include routing, switching, server operating systems, email systems, IP Telephony, wireless and virtualization will be explored in detail.
