The Professor behind this Diploma Program
Luis De Leon, one of our School of Computer Sciences and Technology professors, specializes in networks and cloud technology. He has been working with networks for more than 30 years.
“It is great to see how bright the future of networking is. Every day, there are more requests for Network Professionals that understand Cloud technology and have the ability to connect on-premises infrastructures to Azure or AWS through VPN or SD-WAN.”
Professor De Leon is confident that to succeed in this arena, “networking professionals will need to know Python since networking is becoming more automated. This means the Network Professional will have to adapt to new trends and technologies, like SD-WAN, more reliance on Wireless technology like the new 5g and Wi-Fi 6. Everything is being virtualized, from servers, pcs to networking.”
“How IT professionals choose their tools and design their IT environments to be automated, virtualized, programmable, secure and scalable will surely be the difference between success and failure.” Cisco
