           Computer Network Systems and Security program has recently been accepted as a CompTIA Authorized Academy. Students will now receive academic skills and hands on training as well as receive a free CompTIA certification voucher in several classes. Graduating with both a degree and respected industry certification will give our graduates a huge advantage in seeking employment.

According to the State of Michigan, employment in a Computer Network Systems career will lead all other sectors in job growth through the year 2024. Network Administrators, Computer Systems Analysts, Information Systems managers, Computer Support Specialists, and Information Security technicians will all experience 15% increases in position openings. Many of these positions will offer starting wages of $17 to $23 per hour and require industry certification.

Computer Network Systems and Security curriculum prepares graduates in computer operating systems, network infrastructure and devices (routers and switches), server management (Windows and Linux), managing data and people, and all aspects of cybersecurity (system, network, human, and internet). Students are prepped and encouraged to earn as many as 9 IT industry certifications, including the Microsoft Technology Associate certifications which are taken right in the classroom.  CNSS is a 'hands-on' program because IT jobs are mostly 'hands-on' as well.  And now, prepares students to take and to earn CompTIA certifications!
