CSET Computer Systems Engineering Technology

Cisco projects an increase in datacenter workloads by two-fold and a three-fold increase in cloud workloads from 2015 to 2020. This increase in local datacenter and cloud utilization will bring new security, local datacenter administration, and networking challenges to the industry. The Computer Systems Engineering Technology (CSET) program at STCC prepares students to tackle the challenges of information technology, cloud computing and virtualization with a focus on security, system administration, and networking.

Students will take courses in topics such as Windows Server and Linux server administration, Cisco networking, datacenter storage management, the Internet of Things (IoT), cryptography, firewalls, cloud computing, and server virtualization.

The CSET curriculum draws from the following industry standard certification exam objectives for its core classes and labs.

Our students are given access to the latest educational resources and materials through the Cisco Networking Academy, the Dell/EMC Academic Alliance, and the VMware Academic Program. Since security is a process that must be stressed throughout the Information Technology field, all courses in the CSET program are designed with a high security posture in mind.

Graduates are encouraged to pursue a bachelor's degree upon completion of their associate's degree. Students are also encouraged to build on this foundation in their professional development through the pursuit of industry certifications.

The CSET program has articulation agrrements with the following colleges and universites: Other popular colleges that our students like to transfer too are:
