Computer and Communication Networks Consists of Carefully Delivered Curriculum

During each semester of Centennial College’s Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences – Computer and Communication Networks, students attend networking, business, math and software-related courses as well as a field placement to ensure they are comfortable in real-world environments. This is essential to them obtaining a well-rounded education that will compliment the Bachelor degree they receive.

Here is a look at some of the topics that are covered within this
computer networking training.

Computer Network Fundamentals:
To gain a solid foundation on which to base the rest of their training, students attend this course during the first semester. It focuses on network terminology, protocols, local-area networks (LANs), wide-area networks (WANs), Open System Interconnection (OSI) models. Up to date technologies on wireless, ADSL, and cable modems technologies are surveyed and its features are explained. Through hands-on application, hardware such as router, hubs and network cabling is introduced with Internet Protocol (IP) addressing, and network standards.

Computer Architecture:
Another fundamental course, it introduces the structure and operation of computers. Students learn operational methods of the hardware, with the services provided by operating system software; with the acquisition, processing, storage, and output of data; and with the interaction between computers.

Database Design & Modeling: In labs, students are exposed to core concepts related to relational databases, including the general architecture, conceptual, logical and physical design, querying techniques, and security features.

Principles of Computer & Network Security: Security and privacy are pivotal issues in today’s networking environment. The safely transmission of information relies on a proper design of computer security architecture. As such, students first obtain mathematical fundamentals and principles that provide a framework to model and analyze security. Security models, policies and implementations techniques are then explained and evaluated.

Voice Systems & Services:
Today’s telecommunication networks include transporting voice, images, video and data to any location in the world. To gain a full perspective, in groups, students debate current telecommunication trends and make predictions. They also plan and design telecommunications systems in practical lab applications that cover: voice mail management, call centre practices and incorporation of wireless telecommunication devices into the telephone network. Broadband networks, ISDN, frame relay, ATM, SDH and SONET are also examined.

After students successfully complete each network, software, math and business communications course, they are prepared to launch careers as: business account managers, IT project managers, technical account managers, network administrators, security analysts, network analysts, network support and project management analysts.
