Computers/IT:
Ed Bigos & Andrew Collins, Computer Systems faculty, and Nick Bishop, CSET staff assistant:
What is Computer Systems Engineering Technology?
Description with embedded videos: By 2025 Mobile Internet access is expected to hit 4.3 billion users worldwide. Artificial Intelligence will become more widespread and the current estimated 9 billion Internet of Things (IoT) devices which are connected to global information networks is expected to grow beyond 50 billion devices in the next decade.

The Computer Systems Engineering (CSE) program is designed to offer you the training and experience to tackle the IT challenges of today and tomorrow. We pride ourselves on providing a “hands on” kinesthetic education, where you will train on real enterprise grade equipment in one of our well-equipped labs.

We are a proud partner of the Cisco Networking Academy. The Cisco Networking Academy is a learning resource which provides students high quality training materials and simulation tools at no cost to the student. Check out this video about Sergio Sales, and his journey into the Information Technology career, with his training at a Cisco Networking Academy like ours. (Sergio Sales – Cisco Networking Academy) (embedded video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mppZbmPqqCA

There are many pathways, certifications and learning opportunities for students through the Cisco Networking Academy. Check out Cisco’s Interactive Learning Paths (link text to: https://ciscointeractivepathways.com/ ).

Beyond the focus of IT Networking, the Internet of Things (IoT) has become an explosive force on the world stage in recent years. Internet connected devices from the Amazon Microwave, to Smart Cars, Smart Homes and more; have added millions more devices to manage and deploy. In the CSET program, you will explore how to manage and deploy IoT devices in this ever-expanding market. (What is the Internet of Things?) (embedded video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uEsKZGOxNKw

With this massive increase in connected devices, now more than ever Cyber Security is a crucial part of building and maintaining networking infrastructure. All of the advancements in the Internet of Things, the worldwide growth of I.T. Networking, and the many other I.T. related systems increase the risk and create many new threats of being attacked. (The World of Cyber Security) (embedded video) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QR1UWSdR3rY

While there are many levels of Cyber Security defenses, the CSE programs primary focus is on securing the I.T. Networking infrastructure and its devices. CSE graduates are the boots on the ground, the first line of defense against cyber threats and threat actors. In courses such as Computer & Network Security, CSE students explore the fundamentals of Cyber Security and its applications to many different I.T. systems and devices. Students will also explore and work hands on in Cyber Security Operations and Ethical Hacking courses, exploring defensive and offensive technical security aspects.

If you want to enroll in a top of the line, hands on program, with excellent career growth and earning potential, come join us in the Computer Systems Engineering program at STCC. (Link “Computer Systems Engineering” text to: https://www.stcc.edu/explore/programs/cset.as/
