Navigate a networking systems career

The Networking Systems Bachelor's of Applied Science Degree specialization at Eastern Florida State College prepares students to evaluate a company’s needs for network usage, then plan, design, and implement systems to meet the requirements — including the ability to update current systems and oversee the development of new ones.

Students will demonstrate an understanding of fundamental hardware and software architecture of computing systems, including computer processing units, memory requirements, input/output devices, operating systems and application software.

Potential career positions after graduation include Computer Network Architect, Network Administrator and Computer Support Specialist.

To meet the needs of all students, classes are offered in flexible formats to include day, evening, online and and blended courses that are part classroom and part online. The degree is also Financial Aid eligible. Students are admitted to the program in the January and August terms only following the general Bachelor's Degree online application process.

Students wishing to enter this program will need to earn a grade of C or higher in the following prerequisites that are not presently part of the EFSC Associate Degree programs.

  • MAC 1311 - Calculus 1
  • PHY 2048 - General Physics 1
  • COP 2334 - C++ Programming or other suitable Programming Course

Students with an A.S degree may have taken these prerequisite courses, but if not they will be required and an advisor can help with course planning.

Students entering the Computer BAS program with an Associate in Arts (A.A.) degree may be required to take additional math and science courses (see the prerequisite list above), plus technical elective credit hours which should be selected in collaboration with an advisor. An Associate of Applied Science (AAS) degree does not meet the minimum eligibility requirement for entry into this program. AAS degree holders who intend to transfer into the BAS program should consult with an academic advisor to review coursework and determine the best transfer options.

Schedule an appointment with a Bachelor's Degree advisor who can help you plan your personalized course of study.
