networking student and instructor

The Cisco® CCNA® Exploration curriculum is designed for Cisco Networking Academy® students who are seeking entry-level information and communication technology (ICT) skills. CCNA Exploration provides an integrated and comprehensive coverage of networking topics, from fundamentals to advanced applications and services, while providing opportunities for hands-on practical experience and soft-skills development.

CCNA Exploration is designed for students with advanced problem solving and analytical skills, such as students pursuing degrees in engineering, information technology, math, or science. Students are expected to know binary math and understand the concept of algorithms.

CCNA Exploration is composed of four courses:
Network Fundamentals Routing Protocols and Concepts $169 per credit – (resident)
*Health Insurance for spring (applies for 9+ credits) = $801.50

Total for Residents: $2,197
LAN Switching and Wireless Accessing the WAN
Courses Currently Offered
ENGT130 - Network Fundamentals     << Register Today >>
This course is the first of four modules that prepare students for the Cisco CCNA Certification. This course briefly covers the fundamentals of computer hardware and software, introduces the architecture, structure, functions, components, and models of the Internet and other computer networks. Students will use the OSI and TCP layered models to examine the nature and roles of protocols and services at the application, network, data link, and physical layers. This course introduces the principles and structure of IP addressing and the fundamentals of Ethernet concepts, media, and operations to provide a foundation for the curriculum. Packet Tracer (PT) activities will be used to help students analyze protocol and network operation and build small networks in a simulated environment. At the end of the course, students will be able to build simple LAN topologies by applying basic principles of cabling, performing basic configurations of network devices such as routers and switches, and implementing IP addressing schemes. Three lecture and two lab hours per week and additional online course time of seven hours each week to total 35 online hours.
This first course has no prerequisites. It is a prerequisite for the other three courses.

ENGT131 - Routing Protocols and Concepts     << Register Today >>
This course is the second of four modules that prepares students for the Cisco CCNA Certification. The course describes the architecture, components, and operation of routers and explains the principles of routing and routing protocols on the Network Layer of the OSI Model and the TCP/IP Model. Students analyze, configure, verify, and troubleshoot the primary routing protocols RIPv1, RIPv2, EIGRP, and OSPF. Students complete a basic procedural lab, followed by basic configuration, implementation, and troubleshooting labs in each chapter. Packet Tracer activities reinforce new concepts and allow students to model and analyze routing processes that may be difficult to visualize or understand. Two lab and two lecture hours per week and additional required online course time of five hours each week to total 25 online hours.

Prerequisite: ENGT 130 Network Fundamentals.

ENGT132 - LAN Switching and Wireless     << Register Today >>
This course is the third of four modules that will prepare students for the Cisco CCNA Certification. This course provides a comprehensive, theoretical, and practical approach to learning the technologies and protocols needed to design and implement a converged switched network. Students learn about the hierarchical network design model and how to select devices for each layer. The course explains how to configure a switch for basic functionality and how to implement Virtual LANs, VTP, and Inter-VLAN routing in a converged network, and students develop the knowledge and skills necessary to implement a WLAN in a small-to-medium network. Two lecture and two laboratory hours per week and additional required online course time of five hours each week to total 25 online hours. 

Prerequisite: ENGT 130 Network Fundamentals.

ENGT133 - Accessing the WAN
This course is the fourth of four modules that will prepare students for the Cisco CCNA Certification. The course discusses the WAN technologies and network services required by converged applications in enterprise networks. The course uses the Cisco Network Architecture to introduce integrated network services and explains how to select the appropriate devices and technologies to meet network requirements. Finally, students learn how to detect, troubleshoot, and correct common enterprise network implementation issues. The course thoroughly covers all WAN technologies. Two lecture and two laboratory hours per week and additional required online course time of five hours each week to total 25 online hours.

Prerequisites: ENGT 130 Network Fundamentals, ENGT 131 Routing Protocols and Concepts, and ENGT 132 LAN Switching and Wireless.
