Schedule: from 6 p. m. to 9:30 p. m.

Frequency: one day per week.

Duration: 12 modules, 7 weeks each, 4 hours per week.

Program rationale:

Graduates of this program are trained to successfully work in the area of ​​data communication systems. They can carry out activities in this area such as configuring, installing, providing maintenance and repairing data communication networks, both copper and wireless, including the entire communication process from servers, to routing and switching, to the end user.

They will study protocols, signals, interfaces, networks, structured cabling, services and equipment used for data transmission with an emphasis on technology and its applications used in modern businesses. They can also analyze different options for telematics services.


The program consists of 12 courses (7 weeks for each course, with one or two weeks free between courses), with a duration of 28 hours for each course.

It is recommended that students devote at least two hours of individual study for each lesson hour – 336 classroom hours plus 672 hours of study, for a total of 1,008 hours.

The courses taught in this program are considered to be introductory level to advanced level.


Students will be able to perform the following tasks:

  • Understand current and future trends in telematics, a core part of all computer systems with the ability to communicate data locally or over long distances.
  • Learn the foundations of data transmission in private and in public networks, from copper pairs to fiber optics, from communication between personal computers, through wireless networks, to access to international public networks.


To have completed at least a ninth grade education.

Study plan


The program is delivered using lectures, demonstrations and guided practice. Cases with practical applications of what is learned will be developed with the guidance and technical support of the instructor. There will be at least one evaluation for each course.
