Computer Networking Minor

The minor in Computer Networking (MCNE) provides students with an opportunity to learn how the Internet works. Students will gain a solid grounding in the protocols that allow networking devices and systems to communicate. This includes the configuration and management of core networking hardware such as routers and switches as well as end systems such as servers, laptops, and mobile devices. 

The minor itself requires 16 total credits; however, to enroll in the minor a student must complete both of the prerequisite courses. All courses are 4 credits.
