COMPUTER AND NETWORK SYSTEMS
ADMINISTRATION (CNSA)
CNSA 107 (3 Credits)
PC Hardware and Support Fundamentals

This course is focused on the internal components and operation
of digital devices with emphasis on desktop PC systems used for
business. Processors, memory, hard drives, SSDs, communication
buses, and other components are covered. Electricity fundamentals
and the binary numbering system are also a part of this course.
Students build a computer from scratch in the lab.

CNSA 111 (3 Credits)
Introduction to Networking

Provides an overview of modern networking arrangements and
goes into detail about the digitization of analog signals, the OSI
model, the Ethernet protocol, and Ethernet switching. IP addresses
and IP sub-netting are also covered in depth.
Prerequisite: CNSA 107

CNSA 117 (3 Credits)
Analysis of TCP/IP and Local Area Networking

The TCP/IP protocol suite is explored in detail. Topics include
ARP, ICMP, DNS, DHCP, IPv4, IPv6, and TCP operation details
such as sequencing, acknowledgments, and sliding window
flow control. After lecture is complete, students spend lab time
capturing frames with a software protocol analyzer and verifying
the behaviors they learned about in lecture. Wireless networking
(WiFi) is also a part of this course.
Prerequisite: CNSA 111

CNSA 123 (3 Credits)
Telecommunications Technologies for Wide Area
Networking

Cabling standards and best cabling practices in the industry
are covered. Students practice hands-on cable termination of
copper and fiber cables in the lab. This course also provides an
overview of telecommunications technologies and the use of
telecommunications in wide area networks (WANs). Students
have the opportunity to earn Tyco Electronics certified premises
cabling installation certification.
Prerequisite: CNSA 117
78 * Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology

CNSA 156 (3 Credits)
Operating Systems I

Microsoft's server operating systems are a dominant network
operating system in the information technology industry. In this
course, along with CNSA 161, students get detailed lecture about
and hands-on experience with Microsoft's server operating system.
Practical hands-on experience is included in the labs and begins
with attended and unattended installation methods. Included in
installation methods are imaging and cloning techniques for mass
rollouts of server and client operating systems. The lecture and labs
continue with configuration of file and print servers, securing files
with share and NTFS permissions, disk management (including
RAID), disaster recovery, and backup methods.
Prerequisite: CNSA 123

CNSA 161 (3 Credits)
Systems Administration I

This course continues where CNSA 156 leaves off. In this course,
students learn about Microsoft's Active Directory structure and
management. User account maintenance, user profiles, logon
scripts and group policy are covered. Students also learn in the
classroom what goes on behind the scenes with dynamic host
control protocol (DHCP or automatic addressing) and domain
name server (DNS or computer name resolution). Ultimately,
students take this classroom theory and apply it in the lab as they
create their own active directory domains and configure DHCP
and DNS services within their domain. Prerequisite: CNSA 156

CNSA 166 (3 Credits)
Internetworking Devices and Concepts

This is a Cisco-centric course on IP routing and switching.
Traditional routers and L3 switches are discussed in the classroom
and used in the lab. Routing protocols such as RIPv2, EIGRP, and
OSPF are covered. In addition to routing, voice-over IP (VoIP)
is a significant technology that businesses implement in order to
reduce cost and leverage investments in the data network. For that
reason, this course provides an overview of VoIP and assigns a
lab project to configure a software private branch exchange (PBX)
telephone switch that is capable of routing phone calls within the
lab environment.
Prerequisite: CNSA 161

CNSA 172 (3 Credits)
Web Technologies and Network Security Fundamentals

Students learn how to configure a web server that can host
multiple websites. The course then moves into the creation of
web pages from scratch using HTML, CSS, and a text editor.
Since security has become an increasingly important issue in our
times, some of the security measures that are commonly used on
the Internet are included in this course. These security measures
include an overview of threats and defense strategies, the public
key infrastructure (PKI), digital certificates, hash codes, and
digital signatures.
Prerequisite: CNSA 166
