ITEC 275 Computer Networks: Switching, Routing, and WANs

ITEC 275 - Computer Networks: Switching, Routing, and WANs

Credit Hour(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): College Writing (COMM 120) and Principles of Computer Networks (COMP 204) or a Networking Fundamentals course.

This course covers both the design and basic configuration of computer networks. Using Cisco Systems CCDA© certification as a guide, students will learn about the OSI model, network topologies, Wide Area Network (WAN) technologies, wireless LAN, IP addressing, routing protocols, and network security mechanisms. This course also utilizes simulation software to create a small virtual network on the student’s personal computer running Windows XP or Vista. This provides the student interactive configuration experience with the Cisco Systems Internetworking Operating System (IOS) in an isolated environment.

ITEC 350 Windows Administration

ITEC 350 - Windows Administration

Credit Hour(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): Introduction to Computer Science and Object-Oriented Programming (COMP 111) OR Principles of Programming (ITEC 136) OR any structured programming class; AND Principles of COmputer Networks (COMP 204) OR Principles of Network Design and Administration (ITEC 370).

This course provides the student with an introduction to Windows Server 2008 administration and is structured to assist a network manager or planner in planning, configuring, installing, running, and repairing networks that include a Windows Server 2008. As such, it provides an introduction to server installation, Active Directory, printer management, domains, network clients, security, disaster recovery, fault/error management, and scripting of common tasks. This course also uses virtualization software to isolate the Windows Server 2008 operating system from the underlying host operating system. As such, administrative access to a fast machine running Windows XP or better with at least 2 gigabytes of memory and 40 gigabytes of available hard drive space is required. For face to face classes, an external USB 2.0 hard drive with at least 40 gigabytes of free space is required to bring to class.

ITEC 400 Unix Administration

ITEC 400 - Unix Administration

Credit Hour(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): Introduction to Computer Science & Object-Oriented Programming (COMP 111) OR Principles of Programming (ITEC 136) OR any structured programming course; AND Principles of Computer Networks (COMP 204) OR Principles of Network Design and Administration (ITEC 370).

This course covers the basic methods of UNIX system administration. The course will focus not only on userlevel commands and utilities, but also upon installation and configuration of the UNIX kernel, file system, memory, peripheral devices, authentication/authorization and network facilities. The course also provides an introduction to the Perl programming language and the role of Linux in current UNIX environments. This course also uses virtualization software to isolate the UNIX operating system from the underlying host operating system. As such, administrative access to a fast machine running Windows XP or better with at least 2 gigabytes of memory and 40 gigabytes of available hard drive space is required.

ITEC 430 IT Project Management

ITEC 430 - IT Project Management

Credit Hour(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): Information Systems Architecture and Technology (MIS 310), Technical Communication (MIS 320), and Statistical Concepts (MATH 215).

This course provides an introduction to the concepts of information technology project management and techniques for initiating, planning, executing, monitoring and controlling of resources to accomplish specific project goals. Both technical and behavioral aspects of project management are discussed. While the focus is on information technology projects, the principles follow the nine project management knowledge areas outlined in the Project Management Institute’s PMBOK® Guide Third Edition and thus are applicable to the management of any project. Topics will include integration, scope, time, cost, quality, human resource, communications, risk, and procurement management. Project management software utilization is emphasized.

ITEC 450 Database Administration

ITEC 450 - Database Administration

Credit Hour(s): 4

Prerequisite(s): Database Management Systems (COMP/ITEC 281) OR Database Management Systems (COMP/ITEC/MIS 380).

This course covers a breadth of subjects in Database Administration. Building on the database management systems course, this course covers topics about the configuration, administration and performance of the database engine itself. Using Oracle 10g as a platform, students will learn about installation, configuration, performance tuning, security, disaster planning and recovery, and network connectivity of databases. This course also uses virtualization software to isolate the database server operating system from the underlying host operating system. As such, administrative access to a fast machine with at least 1 gigabyte of memory and 20 gigabytes of available hard drive space is required.
