Networking

Networking is the technology of interconnecting computing devices of all types so information can flow between them. This includes activities as simple as topology design to those as complex as the configuration of services and protocols to enable an entire intranet and the support of that environment. While all that data eventually gets to the user, it spends most of its time on hundreds of interconnected servers. Systems administration is the design, installation, configuration, operation, and support of these servers. Networking professionals must be knowledgeable in considering when to use physical or virtual servers, when to use a public or private cloud, and other key performance, reliability, and security issues.
In today’s information-rich environment, computer systems exist at the heart of nearly every organization and are critical to the organization's success. Upon graduation, students can work in nearly any industry as a valuable part of the team helping to ensure their organization's products and services are always available Network and computer systems administrators work with the physical computer networks of a variety of organizations and therefore are employed in many industries. Employment of network and computer systems administrators is projected to grow 12 percent from 2012 to 2022, about as fast as the average for all occupations.
Growth will be highest at firms that provide cloud computing technology. Kerala State Technical Education Development Society assist students in building their technical knowledge and hands on experience with real time projects that are unique .
Our unique course ANTS in networking and systems administration is designed to teach students to be the designers, implementers, operators, and maintainers of computing networks and the computer systems attached to the network. Students evaluate existing networks and computing systems, suggest improvements, monitor such systems for faults, and plan for growth. They will have the opportunity to work in small- to large-scale companies in any industry segment that interests them.
An important goal of the major is to provide students with a level of specialization beyond that provided by typical information systems or information technology programs. To accomplish this, the major focuses on networks of all types and the full range of computer system platforms that can attach to them. In this way the degree program favors depth over breadth. It is this approach that allows faculty to guide students in their exploration of conceptual knowledge, which is enhanced with required cooperative education experiences.
The curriculum includes required core and introductory courses in areas such as programming, database and security, and fundamental courses in computer networking and system administration.
