Network Engineering Degree

Learning to Contribute to the Evolution of Software

Today's increasingly connected digital world has created an Internet/data dependent society. Highly skilled Network Engineers are responsible for the design, implementation and maintenance of our networked systems. They must be proficient in both networking and the IT systems. This degree program will provide you with a well-rounded knowledge base from which to draw upon. A strong foundational knowledge of network and systems engineering concepts form the base on which the advanced topics are built. Key concepts such as routing, switching, server operating systems, email systems, IP Telephony, wireless and virtualization will be explored in detail.

See examples of faculty and student work at UAT's Cyber Security blog.

Information systems vary significantly between industry verticals, service providers, mobile data, consumer and business applications. You will investigate the inner workings of each of these in some detail during your Network Engineering degree journey. Contemporary topics such as IT mobilization, virtualization, cloud computing, IP telephony and datacenter design are some of the new and exciting degree focus areas. Students will be versed in the proper application of information systems and the services they provide. Graduates will demonstrate a mastery of network architecture and be fluent in systems administration. This degree will prepare you with the skills required to become a successful network engineer, systems engineer, or network or systems administrator.

Network Engineering Degree Objectives (BS)

  • Design, implement and maintain a routed and switched IP wired and wireless network infrastructure based on an understanding of core networking concepts and industry best practices.
  • Design, implement and maintain major network systems and services such as active directory, email, DNS, servers, clients and data storage based on an understanding of core information systems concepts and industry best practices.
  • Visualize, communicate and document technology related to consumer, service provider and industry requirements, trends and use cases.
  • Demonstrate the ability to select and architect the most appropriate network, information systems and technologies to meet the requirements of specific projects and communicate these decisions clearly in written and oral forms.
