Network and Convergence Technologies
In two years or less, students can learn or enhance current skills in the Networking and Convergence Technologies program. TCC offers programs in flexible day, evening, and weekend schedules to help students train and improve employment prospects. TCC’s Networking and Convergence Technologies program prepares students for careers in network administration and technical support for both traditional and wireless networks. A series of non-technical and technical core courses provides fundamental computer and system concepts along with related business, office, and communication skills. Advanced coursework includes training in PC hardware and operating systems, Windows servers, networking, routing, security, and wireless networking. Students can prepare for industry certifications such as A+ and Network+ in a hands-on lecture and laboratory environment. If a student’s goal is a four-year degree, each of our Associate in Applied Science degrees has several four-year degree transfer options. Students can also take advantage of optional internships, resume and interview workshops, and industry certification testing, some of the many services offered by the Career Center and the Testing Center.
