  • Objectives
    The Computer Systems Technician (CST) program provides students with abilities and expertise to support the use of computers and networks. Graduates are able to work individually or as part of a team to implement and maintain information technology solutions that correspond to the day-to-day requirements of individuals and organizations. From repairing desktop computers to monitoring network operations and beyond, graduates work in a broad range of employment settings in a variety of sectors in both large and small organizations. The program focuses on technical aspects of commonly used components and troubleshooting techniques for computer hardware, operating systems, networking technologies, system administration, and a suite of related support and application software packages. It also supports students in developing their communication and administration skills, including the ability to work in teams and utilize project management and customer service techniques. Requirements and subject matter found in certifications such as CompTIA's (Computer Technology Industry Association) A+ and Network+, Linux+, and Microsoft Certified Professional (MCP) are used in this program, with some courses fulfilling part of the basic requirements of (Microsoft Certified System Engineer (MCSE), I-Net+ and Novell Certified Linux Engineer (CLE) certifications. The CST program has a dedicated lab, which has been updated to provide each student with a spacious ergonomically correct workstation. All computer workstations have high-speed access to our main campus and the Internet via our Local Area Network (LAN). There are a variety of desktop operating systems including Linux and Microsoft Windows XP-Pro. Also within this lab are Network Operation Systems (NOS) including Linux, Novell Netware, and Microsoft Server. Our students will have access to "real world" routing products by Cisco and Nortel. As an added benefit, our lab can be opened to CST students in the evenings and Saturdays.
