The Computer Network Electronics Technician program consists of three academic terms over 12 months. You will have the option of graduating after the first year if you are interested in entry-level work, or you can stay on for a third and final semester where you will learn some more advanced topics in both networking and servers.
You’ll spend about 30 hours a week in the program, with half your time spent in computer laboratories. You’ll gain a thorough background in all aspects of computers from troubleshooting hardware to maintaining and installing operating systems and server software. In addition, you will learn the fundamental properties of both analog and digital circuitry along with the correct use of modern test instrumentation.
The co-op or internship is an optional component of the program. It is paid work experience that can enable you to experience different employment fields and often leads to permanent employment. Find out more by contacting Co-operative Education and Career Services.
