Associate of Applied Science Degree in IT Server Administration

Specialized in: IT Server Administrator

If you are seeking a degree in server administration to further your career, look no further. Graduates of Asher’s Associate of Applied Science Degree in IT Server Administrator (ITSA) have the server admin training to oversee the day-to-day management of the infrastructure of Windows Server 2008 R2 servers. They are familiar with working in a mixed operating system environment, making them more valuable to employers than those familiar with only a single operating system.

A Microsoft server administrator manages infrastructure, Web, and IT application servers and uses scripts and batch files typically written by others to accomplish tasks on a regular basis. They conduct most server management tasks remotely by using Remote Desktop Server or administration tools installed on the local workstation. A server administrator?s primary tasks include managing the server operating system, file, and directory services, software distribution and updates, profiling and monitoring assigned servers, and troubleshooting.
