Networking Infrastructure

This newly-developed course is starting at St. Clair County Community College in the Fall 2020 semester.

CIS Networking Infrastructure Students will examine and work with various network components such as network device configuration, network operating systems, local and wide area networks, analysis and troubleshooting tools, security and network design. Many topics within this program align with the objectives for industry recognized certifications. These courses help prepare students for certifications including CompTIA’s A+, Network+, and Security+, as well as Cisco’s CCENT and CCNA.

Students are encouraged to seek those certifications in addition to their college coursework. Students already holding recognized industry credentials may be able to earn college credit toward their degree.

Graduates will be prepared to apply for in-demand jobs such as Computer Network Specialist, IT Consultant, Network Engineer, Network Support Specialist and Network Technician. Graduates also have opportunities to continue into bachelor’s degree programs, including some programs where, with careful planning, students can complete up to 90 credits at SC4 and the remaining credits (30-36) either online or on campus at the four-year institution.
