Program Length: 52 weeks
Graduates of Computer Network Engineering Design & Technology programs have demonstrated achievement of vocational learning outcomes which relate to computing in general and computer systems in particular that are necessary to perform their roles according to recognized computer systems technology practices.
The program provides graduates with an ability to work individually or as part of a team to design and implement information technology solutions that correspond to the day-to-day requirements of individuals and organizations. Their activities could have a very broad range, such as: maintain, troubleshoot and administer the use of local area networks; Evaluate and install computer hardware, networking software, operating system software and software applications; provide problem-solving services to network users; install, maintain, troubleshoot and upgrade Web-server hardware and software; implement network traffic and security monitoring software, and optimize server performance; perform routine network start up and close down and maintain control records; conduct tests and perform security and quality controls
Graduates of the Computer Network Engineering Design & Technology diploma program are trained to:
A special feature of this program is the “capstone” Computer Systems Project course taken at the end of the third term which includes such topics as: project management concepts; needs identification techniques; proposed solutions preparation; the project life cycle; the project manager’s responsibilities and skills; the effective project team; types of project organizations; project communications and documentation; project planning, scheduling, and control; resource considerations; and cost planning and performance evaluation. In this course, students have the opportunity to replicate an actual project under the direction of NAC’s instructors who are also practicing computer systems technicians.
Another feature is the Career Development course also taken in the final term which focuses on career planning and effective job search strategies, the techniques of researching companies, the basics of interviewing including a review of typical interview questions and role-playing, with all of this being presented and directed by senior practicing engineers who have direct and current experience with interviewing and hiring computer technicians.
The graduates work in a wide range of settings in both large and small organizations and in a variety of sectors in the computer technology industry. Their activities could have a very broad range: internet web site technician; local area network administrator or technician; network administrator or technician; network support technician; system administrator
Advance standing into term three is open to individuals holding engineering degrees or engineering technology diplomas provided that the complete the Advanced Hardware and Software Applications course. Other individuals may receive credit for theory and/or practical subjects if they have taken previous related courses. The amount of credit to be awarded is determined on an individual basis after an interview with the Program Director and a review of the student’s transcript of marks for the previous courses. Applicants will also have the opportunity to receive credit by challenging the Final Exam for that course and receiving a minimum passing score of 70% on the exam.
