The Online Network Architecture and Operations track, a Master of Science degree in Telecommunications, is part of ITP's Professional Master's Program (PMP) which prepares students to become the individuals responsible for the design, construction, and operation of enterprise-grade data communication systems. Network Architecture and Operations teaches students how to develop, build, and maintain network solutions tailored to the diverse needs of the industry within the private or public sectors.

Here are some questions to help you decide on the program:

  • Are you looking to earn more in your salary? 
  • Are you a working professional with limited time on the weekdays or unable to travel regularly to a college campus?
  • Do you want a hands-on lab experience on campus during your last semester to solidify your critical thinking and skills?

If the answer is yes, then you should consider an online, 24-month master’s degree in Telecommunications from CU Boulder for a career in Network Architecture and Operations. All courses will be offered in the evening and via distance except for the Capstone course. 

Finish your online master's degree in 24 months, depending upon your availability, allowing you to maintain a full-time job during the day.  The program will give you the skills to plan, manage, and communicate intelligently with multiple audiences based on current best practices, policies, and regulations. You will:

  • Analyze and design complex networks architectures
  • Build and deploy multivendor network solutions
  • Manage, monitor, and audit networks and systems to identify problems and proactively correct/resolve them
  • Plan, manage, and communicate intelligently with multiple audiences based on current best practices, policies, and regulations established by the FCC, IETF, IEEE, BITAG, NANOG and other relevant consortia in the industry.
