The Computer Systems and Networks major will teach you how software is controlled on one or many computers, including security, networking and operating systems.
It's a very technical major and you'll need strong conceptual and programming skills to do well. Courses focus on programming, computer architecture, computer networks, operating systems, distributed computing and systems security, as well as a variety of distributed software applications (internet applications, mobile computing, embedded computing and ubiquitous computing).
Graduates of the Computer Systems and Networks major typically work in software development companies, business enterprises, government departments, and research organisations.
