Student working on a server

Keeping businesses connected.

Now more than ever, companies need skilled network administrators to prepare and maintain an increasingly complicated system of networks that keep businesses running.

In the SUNY Morrisville Bachelor of Technology (B. Tech.) degree program in information technology: network administration, you will work with the latest versions of area networks, virtual private networks, intranets and the internet.

For coursework, Morrisville’s Computer Information Technology (CIT) Department provides you with Microsoft platform, servers and developer tools software such as Visual Studio, Microsoft Project, Microsoft Visio and versions of Windows server through its membership in the Microsoft Azure Dev Tools for Teaching. Not only do you get to use this software during your studies, but you can keep it upon completion of the program.

The CIT Department also maintains an alliance with VMware, which provides you with the software needed to run virtual operating system environments on your machines.

Our hands-on approach to learning culminates in a semester-long, 12-credit professional internship, where 480 hours of work in an industry setting grants you the professional experience necessary to launch your career. You might also land a full-time position with the organization sponsoring your internship, as has been the case for many of our graduates.

You can enhance your college experience through a variety of related clubs. The SUNY Morrisville Competitive Gaming Club creates a community for interested gamers through education, sportsmanship, competitive multiplayer gaming and attendance at gaming-related events. Additionally, the SUNY Morrisville Technology Club brings together students, faculty and staff who are interested in computer systems, computer information, networking computers and using computers for our community.

The college is one of the first to annually host Global Game Jam® (GGJ), the world’s largest on-site game creation event which gives teams of artists, hobbyists, programmers and gamers throughout the world a chance to brainstorm, innovate, collaborate and develop new ideas for game design over the course of 48 hours.
