RE: Certification or College degrees? Was: RE: list problems?

Not to toot the horn of my Alma Mater too much, but Ohio University's
Communication Systems Management program ( is also along
the lines of a network engineering degree. It also focus on other aspects
of the industry (regulation, comm theory, security, etc) but they all sort
of flow together. They were just getting into more hands on networking labs
when I graduated, I am sure they have greatly improved since then.


Also sounds a lot like Texas A&M University's Telecommunications
Engineering Technology degree. (Yes, it says Engineering Technology.
No, it's not a two year associates degree.) It's currently rich on
voice communications networks, but is picking up tremendously on data
