Voice and data cabling enable people around the world to communicate by phone, fax, and computer. Cabling is the basis for virtually every network. Today's voice and data cabling is engineered to balance high performance with cost efficiency. The quality of the service provided by the cabling is directly related to the quality of the installation. Properly installed cabling can provide years of service for networks, in most cases outlasting every device connected to the network. Experience has taught us that too many people don't realize the importance of cable infrastructure. At Alfred State College, in the Computer Engineering Technology curriculum there is not a course specifically targeted at the cable infrastructure. This project was to develop a new course aimed at the cable infrastructure to be implemented into the curriculum. This paper is about the entire course development process from project inception to course implementation. Although this project was to design a network infrastructure course, the process used could be applied to develop a new course for any curriculum.
