A Network Engineer, also known as Network Architect, designs and implements computer networks. Unlike network administrators, who perform day-to-day support, the network engineer focuses on high-level design and planning.
Computer Network Engineers or Network Architects, plan and construct data communication networks, such as local area network (LAN) and wide area network (WAN) systems. This can involve selecting the hardware and software, determining the layout of cables, and overseeing other IT professionals to create networks.
The majority of computer network architects work full-time, although overtime is common. Few physical demands and risks are associated with this career. Such computer architects spend long periods of time in front of computers. In addition, IT certification in networking offers targeted training for a network computer engineer. Examples include the Microsoft Network Engineer and Cisco Certified Network Associate (CCNA) certifications.
