As small businesses, government agencies, nonprofits, and large corporations increasingly depend on their computer networks for their everyday work, the demand for network and system administrators has continued to expand. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, jobs for network and system administrators are expected to grow much faster than the average growth for all other occupations over the next several years.
The Network and System Administration specialty at Baruch’s Division of Continuing and Professional Studies (CAPS) is conducted in partnership with the Borough of Manhattan Community College (BMCC) and all courses are held on the BMCC campus at 25 Broadway. This comprehensive program provides a solid foundation in the skills needed to design, install and maintain local-area networks (LAN), wide-area networks (WAN), intranets, and Internet systems.
In addition to covering the basics of system administration and maintenance, network security, and other fundamentals, a number of courses in this program area are designed to prepare you for professional certification exams, such as Cisco’s Network Security Exam, CompTIA A+ exams, and Microsoft certification exams.
