STUDENTS AND EMPLOYERS AGREE: SULLIVAN IS THE PLACE FOR IT
Students looking for a career in Information Technology need to look no further than Sullivan University. Since Sullivan’s IT Academy was formed in 1997, it has been providing students the opportunity to earn industry-recognized certifications from leading vendors worldwide. Most students currently work in the field and are looking to advance their skillset to get promoted, or are IT savvy and looking to transition into the field. Both groups achieve success at Sullivan.
Sullivan students are able to pursue their certifications while also pursuing their degree. This is something unique among universities. Sullivan is a private Prometric and Pearson VUE testing center. When students are ready, they can schedule their certification exams, often at the same facility they take class.
The IT Academy is comprised of Microsoft server administration, Cisco, and an ASP.Net web development track. Students in the Microsoft server administration track learn all of the basic and more advanced concepts of server administration. Students are given the opportunity to build out a proof of concept network infrastructure and document their project builds. Many often use their documentation to rebuild their projects after the course is complete; others have used their documentation to demonstrate their competency during a job interview. Students have a better understanding of client/server administration and cloud computing upon course completion. The courses are designed to prepare students for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Expert (MCSE) certification exams.
The Cisco track allows students to learn many basic as well as advanced routing and switching configurations. There are currently a number of students from Timer Warner, Charter and West IP Communications enrolled in the Cisco program. All of these students are working toward their Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) or Cisco Certified Networking Professional (CCNP) certifications.
The web development track prepares students for the Microsoft Certified Solutions Developer exams (MCSD). Students become familiar with Visual Studio and ASP.Net development. Students in this track are the more creative thinkers who enjoy programming and crafting customized solutions.
