Computer Networking and Communications Programs at Ontario Colleges

What to expect from a career as a Computer Networker

Computer networking, like all fields in the computer technology industry, is in demand. With increasing emphasis on web-based interactions, transactions and commerce, as well as the latest developments in wireless technology, network security is now a must-have for many businesses.

If you’re interested in funnelling your interest in computers into a cutting-edge career through one of the many computer networking and communications programs at Ontario colleges, here’s what you need to know. More

Computer Networking and Communications Courses

In the first year of many computer networking and communications programs at Ontario colleges, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of computer hardware, operating systems and computer programming. From there, skills in management systems and server operations, as well as practical applications of local area networks (LAN) and wide area networks (WAN), will be developed. Students can expect to learn the latest in network security using the most up-to-date computer security software.

There are a variety of computer networking and communications programs available, including computer network technician and computer network technologies training. Often, the difference is in the length and depth of study, with some programs offering a Bachelor of Applied Information Sciences option for further education. Be sure to read each college’s program outline to decide which is right for you.

General Computer Networking and Communications Requirements

Admission requirements for computer networking and communications programs at Ontario colleges include an Ontario Secondary School Diploma (OSSD) or equivalent, with a grade 12 English (and often a grade 12 mathematics) credit.

After completion of the program, many colleges recommend students write the MCSA exams, as well as the CCNA exam, as recognition from industry leaders Microsoft and Cisco.

Computer Networking and Communications Jobs and Salaries

A degree in computer networking and communications opens up a number of career paths. Depending on your interests, you could pursue positions such as:

  • Network Administrator
  • Network Engineer
  • Technical Support Analyst
  • Webmaster

Salaries in this field will vary (particularly with level of experience), but based on the in-demand nature of the industry, salaries typically start in the $34,000 to $42,000 per year range.
