Computer Network and Communication

Computer Network and Communication

Computer networks have become a pivotal factor in information exchange between individuals, organizations, and businesses around the globe, as well as playing an essential role in business management, operation, and production activities. The omnipresence of the Internet in everyday life has also brought about the rapid development of computer networks. We surf the web, check e-mails, make VoIP calls and organize a video conference call via computers. All these applications are made possible through networking of computers. Never before have the building and managing of computer networks been considered of the utmost importance, as they are now.

Computer Network and Communications studies the principles, designs, construction, operation, and management of computer networks, from internal to global ones; user management; and supervision and coordination of activities relevant to the entire network system. Students of this major are also able to master common applications such as e-mails, file transfer, information communication, or advanced technologies such as cloud computing, grid computing, distributed computing, data center construction and operation, and information system security.

The Computer Network and Communications major is attracting a lot of attention in the age of technological revolution as the need for more human resources in this field continually grows. Having a curriculum designed with care, SIU’s Computer Network and Communications program aims to equip the students with the latest and advanced knowledge, both general and specialized, for adaptability in the globalization context, helping them meet the increasing demands for human resources in our ever-changing world.
