Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

List the degree, and break it down into categories/subjects studied such as

Operating systems
Networking and networking protocols
Web applications
Database applications

Then under each category a brief list of what you covered. So it may look something like:

2004 – 2010: Bachelor’s Degree at X University
Topics covered:

Network Hardware
Choosing and implementing switches, routers, firewalls, and cables
Configuring Cisco hardware from command line and SDM
Choosing and configuring Sonicwall hardware

Operating systems
Configuring and troubleshooting Windows 2003 and 2008
Designing and implementing Windows server networks

Network topology
Implementing, troubleshooting, optimising networks


As with all resume writing try to stand out and try to give as much detail as possible without making it too long!
