An associate degree is the first post-secondary degree individuals can obtain after earning a high school diploma or certificate. It covers a specialized field of study that is typically completed within 24 months.

What is an associate degree in computer networking? In addition to taking general education courses including humanities, speech, English and mathematics, students gain a working knowledge of how computer network systems are designed, installed and secured. Course topics include PC assembly, routing, computer systems, fiber optics, computer science, networking security and network administration. Students also typically learn how to set up and administer wireless networks, wide area networks (WAN) and local area networks (LAN). Students learn how to troubleshoot and maintain hardware and software. After graduation, individuals can obtain IT industry certification, such as MCTS, CompTIA Network and CCNA.

Students develop highly sought after skills, such as analysis, problem solving, multitasking and communication. These skills open the door to a wide range of career opportunities within multiple industries.

Every educational institution is different, so the tuition and fees vary. Research the schools to find the best fit for your budget and career goals.

Computer networking is a high demand field with strong growth potential over the next few years. Major industries ranging from health care and transportation to communication and entertainment need professionals who know how to install, troubleshoot, secure and administer software and hardware. Graduates can enter the job market as computer support specialists, help desk analysts, network administrators, database managers or Internet managers. There are many career paths offering a stable starting salary. However, the money you earn varies by industry and location.

Classes are available on a full-time basis with the option of open enrollment, which allows you to begin the program anytime during the year. Search for your program below and contact directly the admission office of the school of your choice by filling in the lead form.
