      Accelerate your career prospects in professional system administration as a participant in one of the world's top open source communities. This intensive eight-month, two semester program involves the comprehensive study of advanced Linux technologies while working on projects within the Fedora community and collaborating directly with Fedora contributors from around the world.

      Linux is a hot technology in the computing industry. It is being used in systems ranging from cell phones to supercomputers and is supported by all of the top computer vendors. Total annual Linux-related sales are in the billions of dollars.

They are equipped to select, configure, deploy, and support Linux-based networks, server and desktop systems, and supercomputing clusters; integrate Linux, Unix, and Windows systems into seamless networks; and create and use scripts and custom tools to manage administration tasks.

      There are ten courses in this program. Half of each course is spent gaining practical, hands-on experience with Linux systems in our fully-equipped Linux lab. A co-op option is also available so that students can gain valuable job experience.
