Labs & Hands-On Work
More than half of the IT programs coursework is performed by working on projects and lab exercised in SCIT’s Computer Networking Lab. The lab includes a cluster of servers that provide students with multiple virtual instances of Microsoft Windows Servers and Cisco based Routers and Switches. With these virtual server and network device instances, students can configure and assemble a variety of virtual IT infrastructures based on different business needs and learn how to troubleshoot computer networks and services.
In addition to the virtual instances provided in the Computer Networking Lab, IT students have access to free Microsoft software available through SCIT in partnership with Microsoft, which they can download and work with on their personal computers.
