What is the difference between
Computer Engineering
and Networking?

QTL's Computer Engineering prepares high school students for well-paying jobs in the computer technology industry. It also helps schools improve their technology infrastructure, while providing real-world, hands-on experience. The course is mapped to CompTIA's A+ Certification objectives in order to ensure that the curriculum standards met industry needs. Students who successfully complete the two-level course are prepared to seek entry level tech support and computer maintenance jobs.

QTL's Networking covers all the bases of computer networking, from the hardware components that make up a network to the software used to manage and secure it. This course may be implemented alongside Computer Engineering, or may be used as a pre-cursor to advanced programs in Cisco, Microsoft, Linux or other more complex technology. Teachers say this foundational course helps students excel when they reach the more difficult content.
