Michael talks about choosing CNSA and Michigan Tech. The short answer? Informed teachers who make learning fun and relevant. And the placement rate isn’t bad either.
CNSA majors learn how to create and troubleshoot computer networks and manage business systems efficiently and securely.
You can tailor your classroom work to your interests with three technical areas:
- Cyber security
- IT management
- Network engineering
The CNSA program incorporates stimulating “hands-on” laboratories into each of its technical courses. In these intensive learning experiences in the laboratory, students gain lasting experience with the latest technologies and design and implement cutting-edge technologies. All our laboratories are open 24/7.
AEIC students also take advantage of cooperative education (co-op) opportunities and highly competitive internships. These opportunities provide students with excellent industry experience in technical and non-technical fields related to the field.
When you graduate, you’ll be well prepared with the skills and qualifications that today’s employers are looking for.
