The NCE program focuses on the latest networking and telecom technology subjects including, but is not limited to, the use of LAN/WAN/WiFi technology, server/client Operating Systems and administration, digital communications, database management systems, network and information security, web server technology, and the full CCNA international curriculum which is now integrated into our new NCE program.
The NCE program meets the international standards toward a bachelor degree in Information and Communication Technology in North America and Europe.
Our new students are expected to know that our NCE program meets the international standards; the word of mouth from previous graduates proves and motivates our students to register in the program.
Our students are very enthusiastic about the NCE program learning outcomes because they learn from others that our program is very well respected in KSA compared to many other colleges in the Kingdom and once they graduate, the roads become very well paved toward their bright future.
The new CCNA international standard curriculum which is now part of our new NCE curriculum has already started attracting many young Saudis who are keen to graduate not only with a bachelor degree in ICT but also with an international CCNA certificate that will definitely add a big value on their CVs.
What AEC – ICT department offers to the NCE students
As part of the NCE program we offer state of the art labs such as the computer networking lab, the telecom lab, the hardware/cable structuring lab, the computer system admin lab, and lately the CICSO Engineering lab. In these attractive labs the students are offered many hands on technology exercises where they learn by doing things.
We also offer up-to-date technology projects where the students are introduced to a variety of new technology concepts such as network function virtualization, cloud and fog technologies, distributed antenna systems, software-defined networks and many others.
Jobs and Carrier goals for the Network and Communications Engineer
Our NCE program graduates have solid foundations to start their career in many different sectors. They can work as system administrators, technology support specialists, system/networking engineers, IT officers, database administrators, as well as technology trainers.
Our graduates are also very much in demand in the KSA market not only because they hold an engineering degree but also because of their English proficiency as well as their presentation and innovation skills. Some of them even strive to start their own business or aim toward continuing their postgrad education.
