NCPDLP Degree Program

Associate of Science degree in Computer and Information Science with a concentration in Networking & Security Management

The primary goal of this program is to provide you with the foundation to help an organization stay ahead of anyone or anything that might want to harm its computer systems. Now more than ever, as more and more information and business is conducted via the Internet, a person who is responsible for protecting computer networks is a valuable contributor to their organization.

Understanding how systems are vulnerable and knowing how to protect them from hackers, viruses and other acts of cyber-terrorism is a high priority. This educational foundation should provide a strong base to enhance the individual’s technical career progress in either the military or in a civilian capacity. In particular, the graduate should be well prepared to:

  • Administer and manage networks
  • Create and manage user/group accounts and configure network routers
