Advanced Networking & Data Security (ANDS) 
Bachelor of Applied Science (BAS)


The Advanced Networking & Data Security Bachelor of Applied Science degree (ANDS BAS) will enable graduates to meet the needs of a broad scope of information technology skills. TCC has worked to purposefully create curriculum that will build on the Networking and Cybersecurity Associate of Applied Science degree while introducing the higher level knowledge required for networking, system administration and analysis, and database administration.

This degree was created as a pathway for students to become well rounded, soft skilled enabled IT professionals. It seeks to develop not only their technical expertise, but also their ability to work as a team and communicate effectively and professionally. With ethics as its corner stone, graduates will be trained and possess industry certifications in topics such as cloud computing, cybersecurity and forensics, networking, and databases. Students will learn how to properly configure and maintain current and emerging technology for a wide range of business and government applications. By providing a broad-based curriculum, TCC prepares graduates for the challenges of the ever-changing job market. This holistic approach ensures graduates have a competitive edge and possess a broadly desired skill set for future employers.
