A network engineer is required to have the necessary skills to plan, implement and oversee the computer networks that support in-house voice, data, videos and wireless network services. The virtualized network poses challenges to network management systems and as more hardware components are virtualized, that challenge becomes even greater. Often the job titles, network engineer and network administrator are used interchangeably, which can confuse people. However, a networking engineer usually has more executive responsibilities than a network administrator does. The engineering side of things tends to deal more with planning, design and technical specifications, whereas the administration side of things deals mostly with day-to-day maintenance, management and troubleshooting efforts. Computer network engineers have computer science as a common major. Network engineers focus on delivering high-availability network infrastructure to sustain the online and on-site information technology activities of users. In addition to technical skills, network engineers need analytical skills, leadership skills and organizational skills. The network engineer salary ranges from $46,500 to more than $115,000 annually, depending upon skills and experience. The first and most direct way to get a job working as a network engineer is to do some self-study and get vendor certifications, such as becoming a Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA). The top five Networking Certifications are CCIE, CCNP, JNCIE-ENT, CompTIA Network+, and WCNA. Field Engineers may find a move toward a smarter city, with the growth of the use of the Internet of Things and 5G, to mean less work. However, there will be a need for power stations and masts to power smart cities, and the job will change to fit the smaller space that these things will need to take up. It’s a challenge, and it’s one that is firmly the future of field engineering. Read more:High paying entry level jobs
