Networks, and increasingly wireless networks, are becoming the hub of commercial and industrial development across the world as we understand and experience the benefits of wireless networking for day to day functions, including:

  • operations monitoring and control
  • communications within and between organizations
  • information sharing within and between organizations
  • mobile real time accounting and cost control
  • real time sales support and marketing

At the heart of the wireless world is Wireless Information Networking (WIN), and the growing need for professionals who can develop and implement solutions for the configuration and integration of wireless devices.

Capturing data from wireless sensors or wireless synching of mobile devices within secure environments are only a couple of the types of wireless information networking challenges facing businesses, government and organizations today that this program addresses.

Building on the success of our Computer Engineering, Security, and Instrumentation and Control Diplomas, this intensive, unique Graduate Certificate program reflects the latest developments in WIN and relies heavily on applied teaching approaches. It focuses on the design, planning, implementation, operation and troubleshooting of wireless networks, and will cover a wide range of topics including:

  • cloud computing
  • server technology
  • technical project management throughout technology life cycles
  • technology as a service - preventing network wide service outages
  • domestic vs. commercial/industrial needs
  • data mining
  • wireless LAN and WAN setup, security and troubleshooting
  • embedded wireless sensor network programming
  • VOIP
  • 802.11 (a, b and g) technologies
  • vendor interoperability strategies
  • emerging wireless technologies

To expand and enrich your knowledge in a cutting edge field, you must learn from leading industry experts. Our faculty are experienced industry professionals at the top of their field. For you this means hands-on, application-oriented learning and building of wireless information networks. You will learn by practicing on the equipment used in industry.

While at Fleming, you will learn through a variety of methods, including: lectures and labs, analysis of best practices, simulations, guest speakers, field trips, and an applied industry project. During the capstone applied industry project in semesters three and four, you will work on real-life industry Wireless Information Networking problems for diverse businesses and organizations. This experience will demonstrate to others that you can develop innovative solutions to today’s real-world business and organization problems. Graduates will be well-equipped with the theoretical and practical skills necessary to pursue careers as network professionals.

For graduates of the Wireless Information Networking program, your specialist knowledge and skills could be used to support and manage wireless information networks in any organization that uses them.

You will be qualified for positions in:

  • wireless LAN management and support
  • wireless service providers
  • broadband and mobile communications

  • Test and measure RF (radio frequency) signals, attenuation and antenna systems.
  • Assist with the preparation and execution of wireless site surveys.
  • Build a wired and/or wireless computer network using system design documentation.
  • Measure performance of both wired and wireless network components and applications using a variety of basic and advanced network management tools.
  • Produce documentation and reports related to network components and applications performance.
  • Troubleshoot and resolve technical problems related to both wired and wireless networks using standardized approaches and methodologies.
  • Install and upgrade network hardware (e.g. workstations, servers, wireless access points, routers, switches, firewalls) and related components and software according to best practices in the industry.
  • Monitor and evaluate network security issues and perform basic security audits on both wired and wireless networks.
  • Assist in the collection and analysis of user requirements related to wired and wireless networks.
  • Utilize change control, issue documentation and problem escalation procedures and processes as per industry best practices.
  • Generate and maintain "as built" network documentation following industry best practices.
  • Compare network performance against service levels and assist in the development of action plans as required against service level agreements.
  • Employ concepts and practices as defined in ITIL (IT Infrastructure Library) to manage IT.
