Computer Maintenance and Networking

Computer Maintenance and Networking Program Major Mission:

The Computer Maintenance and Networking program major provides a diverse student population with a quality, relevant technical education and applied technical training in the installation, building, operation, maintenance, selection, optimization, programming, and basic electronics of computer systems, networks and associated hardware and software systems, including a general education component through a systematically organized curriculum. The CMNW program maintains a student centered learning environment that helps graduates acquire the knowledge, skill competencies, attitudes, and values to function effectively in their chosen fields, pursue higher education or engage in lifelong learning.

Annual program enrollment data is not gathered for the following reasons:

  1. The CMNW program is not a locked step program. Students can enter the program from multiple first year courses provided that they have been assessed for Mathematics and English, and meet the course pre-requisites. Students progress in the CMNW program at their own pace, either part time or full time to complete the program course requirements. Once all requirements are completed, students graduate.
  2. Students are not required to declare full-time or part-time status.
  3. Multiple courses serve as service courses to other departments within the Engineering Technologies Division and across the college.
  4. The same student can be enrolled in one or more of the program courses. Seats taken does not necessarily equate to number of students in the program.
  5. Student enrollment in any CMNW course does not indicate whether the student is majoring in CMNW or in other programs majors.
