Networking is too important a segment of today's technological evolution that leaving it out won't give you a complete picture. As you know the biggest invention of our time is the internet which basically spurred this current revolution in technology. With internet of things pretty soon everything on this planet will be networked together, so dive in and grasp the basics atleast.

The degree itself can stand out on it's own while the networking or Cisco courses are just additional boost to your resume.
Some employers also require it on top of a CS degree.

Mark’s Answer

Hi!


Computer Science and programming covers a lot of different domains. It is very possible to do programming without indepth knowledge of networking. However, it is generally a good idea for a couple of reasons...


One is that, as a discipline, networking is an area with a lot of both research and practical applications. It is hard to look at cars on a highway to get an idea of traffic... however in a data network, you can collect all sorts of information about the traffic. Concepts that apply in data and communications apply to lots of different areas (and lots of different areas also help with data traffic as well. :) )


The second reason is that "cloud computing" is getting used more and more. Cloud computing is impacted by communications more than traditional models. Lots of work is going into "hiding" that complexity... but just like any subject the more you know of the underlying mechanics, the better off you are.


And yet another reason are there are a lot of jobs in the communication field... they have employed me for 20+ years now. :)


Hope this helps. Best of luck!
