WHO WE ARE
The Departments of Computer Science and CNET (Computers, Networks, and Emerging Technology) at Ohlone College offer courses that prepare students interested in transferring to a four-year university. Our programs for Associate Degrees and Certificates prepare students for employment in the fields of computers, networking, and emerging technologies. Many of our students go on to pursue successful careers as computer programmers, cybersecurity specialists, business analysts, database administrators, systems administrators, support specialists, network technicians, computer engineers, web developers, and other related positions.
Our teaching philosophy is “learning by doing,” where students are taught by industry professionals and are given the opportunities to apply their academic studies to generate real-world solutions. In the classroom, our faculty, the majority of whom have deep backgrounds with Silicon Valley technology companies, share their real skills, experiences, and knowledge. Meanwhile, our advisory board consists of industry leaders to ensure that our programs are up-to-date with cutting-edge industry trends.
We prepare and offer a variety of programs and certificates at the CNET Department: Cybersecurity, Cisco Certified Network Associate, Cisco Network Professional, Business Analytics, Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator, and Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer.
Our CNET Department is a Cisco Network Academy, Vmware Authorized Academy, Palo Alto Network Academy, CompTIA Academy, and Microsoft IT Academy.
