Businesses have come to depend on the lightening speed in which information is shared through digital technology. They need IT experts to construct systems for data transfer, and those who have taken a course in networks are equipped with this highly sought after skillset.

What is a course in networks? It is a class popular with computer science and information technology students. It provides an excellent overview of the technology that computers use to communicate with one another. Topics of study include efficiency, cost of networks, implementation, design and networking goals. Students learn how resources are controlled and content distributed, and they become experts in the operation and security of modern information systems.

After completing this course of study, students become familiar with the common hardware and software tools that enable communication between computer systems. They may have the skills to create network topologies, administer existing systems and improve network security. They may also be able to troubleshoot problems in existing systems and make suggestions for upgrades and performance improvements. Students gain an understanding of the most common protocols and are often able to work effectively with internet service providers, WiFi networks and cellular networks.

The cost for one of these courses may vary depending on the institution. Students should check with the admissions departments of their universities for information on fees, tuition and material costs.

Graduates are prepared for careers as network professionals working in large companies and organizations. IT departments often hire these students to work as system or network administrators and technical operators. Banks and other financial institutions offer positions as security experts, and many graduates become consultants or analysts. For those that enjoy working with customers, careers in computer sales and customer support roles are also commonly available.
