Job Description

A network engineer is a tech professional who understands the inside out of a computer network system, hardware infrastructure, and other related systems.

The core responsibility constitutes designing, maintaining, and handling the current network systems as well as implementing new ones for efficient working of network operations. The role also comes with the responsibility of managing the security of these networks. Working beforehand to find the problems and even working after a problem to find a solution is what accounts for a perfect network engineer.

A network engineer should have a basic bachelor’s or master’s degree in the field of computer science or any other related field. A strong understanding of the hardware infrastructure, DNS (domain name system), routers, firewall systems, and cloud computing applications are required. An ideal network engineer should possess good analytical, communication, time management, and creative skills.

Network Engineers with knowledge of coding languages like Python, C++ or Java, etc, are preferred by many employers.


Fundamentals of Operating System

The working of an operating system, the processes, and everything constitutes a bigger part of learning for a network engineer.

As a network engineer is responsible for creating, maintaining, and managing the complete network infrastructure, a fundamental knowledge of operating systems like Linux, Windows, macOS will benefit the engineer. It is not even just a side skill rather a must possess the skill.

However, to ease your process, you could work on any operating system suited for the company you are applying to. Some prefer Linux over windows, so do the learning accordingly.

Programming Language

Just imagine the power you could hold, if you have the knowledge of how to write a code with a comprehensive understanding of network engineering? Writing a code gives an engineer to think creatively about solutions, working with different tools and technologies. Learning a programming language like Python, Perl, or C++, Java, etc could boost up your style of working thereby making everything more efficient and productive.

Cloud computing

Cloud is the present and the future of modern-day technology. The pace at which the cloud has witnessed its growth is tremendous. Plus, the huge demand for it reflects its inevitable bright future prospects.

Therefore, a basic understanding of cloud computing skills in a network engineer could do wonders when applying for the role. Azure, AWS, GCP are some of the examples you could learn about. These will help a business scale up through easily accessible large amounts of data that the cloud allows one to store. It will increase the efficiency, speed, and security of vital data.

Firewalls and Security

Network security might not be the sole work of a network engineer, however, it is one of the crucial responsibilities of a network engineer.

A network engineer should have the necessary knowledge about the security protocols, methodologies, and processes for the network systems. In case of emergent cyberattacks or virus infection, a network engineer should be responsible for handling the situation with his/her best work.

Troubleshooting Processes

You must have often heard or seen this word while finding errors on the browser or the wireless connection. In big companies to find the root of these issues, a network engineer is needed.

To make him/herself purposeful in these situations, a network engineer should be aware of creative, and thorough knowledge about the troubleshooting process. Analyzing the problem and finding a solution at times of emergent need is what is required.

Networking Skills

Having a solid familiarity with the network architectures and types like WAN, LAN is integral to the job of a network engineer.

This network infrastructure allows users to connect and communicate with different computers and users within a wide demographic. One of the most common examples of WAN is the Internet.

Understanding everything about WAN or any other network type is one of the basic skills a network engineer should acquire as these kinds of networks are used by companies on a daily basis for sharing and communicating a large chunk of information or data. With an example as big as the Internet you understand the entirety of potential this network possesses.

Soft Skills
