Network Administrators work with the design, construction, and maintenance of large computer systems. They are responsible for managing complex Local Area Networks (LAN) and Wide Area Networks (WAN) as well as intranet and Internet-based systems and network segments. All of this is done to support the information technology infrastructure of corporations, government agencies and other businesses that the network administrator works for.

Network administrators work in a wide range of settings from the IT department of the largest corporations to the smallest companies to government agencies. In all of these locations, administrators are responsible for installing and maintaining network hardware and software and evaluating system performance in order to address critical problems to allow for maximum capacity of network systems.

Although there are numerous levels of education available for network administration, most employers requires students to possess a Bachelor's Degree or better to begin work. Some place will hire network administrators with an Associates Degree or professional certification if they have relevant work experience to complement their education. Often, those who get an Associates Degree or Certification begin work as a Network Support Specialist first to gain relevant work experience before making it up to Network Administration. Bachelor's degree students can usually find work as a Network Administrator straight out of college.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2016-2018 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2018-2019 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
