In a job-market where the pay for technology-related careers is fast on the rise and organizations are requiring more experienced individuals to fill these positions, the education received through this program will give graduates a competitive edge, teaching them how to create new networks or move existing ones to platforms with a TCP/IP basis. Organizations need individuals to oversee platforms where separate data, voice, and video networks combine, which is the direction internet engineering is heading. Focusing on aspects such as network reliability, survivability, and the ability to recover from an outage are in-demand skills that graduates from the Master of Science in Internet Engineering program will leave with.
This MS is an online program aimed primarily at students with a bachelor's degree or experience in areas such as network administration, engineering, or management, though students from all paths of education may still approach it. A regionally accredited institution, Capitol College provides practical knowledge and relevant hands-on learning to provide graduates with the skills necessary to successfully compete in the information technology industry. The flexibility provided by Capitol’s LIVE! platform, their online teaching and content host, allows working students the ability to learn anywhere at their own pace while still receiving quality instruction and feedback.
Required classes include the Principles of Designing and Engineering Computer Networks, Network Architecture Convergence using Wireless Technology, and Multimedia and Web Casting, to name just a few. Students will also receive instruction in collaborating technologies and aspects and issues in modern intellectual property. Network security is another important subject taught through this master’s program. The Capstone course tests students’ ability to fulfill all aspects of a research and development project, from proposal to execution. This includes creating an abstract, a schedule, describing the labor mix, a list of proposed subcontracts, and finally the development of a full-cost proposal.
When applying to this program, students are recommended to have a Bachelor of Science degree in Information Technology or a related field, completed with at least a 3.0 overall GPA, though it is not required for admission. Applicants must have knowledge of object-oriented programming and a recommended knowledge of C++ or Java.
Applicants must have completed a Bachelor's degree with an overall 3.0 GPA and demonstrate working knowledge of object-based programming.
