About Network Engineer

A Network Engineer is an individual that is responsible for the maintenance of computer hardware and software systems that make up a computer network including the maintenance and monitoring of active data network or converged infrastructure and related network equipment.

Network Engineers are generally mid-level support staff within an organization and do not typically get involved directly with users. Network Engineers focus upon network components within a company’s LAN/WAN infrastructure ensuring integrity. Depending on the company and its size, the Network Engineer may also design and deploy networks.

Network engineers are responsible for installing, maintaining and supporting computer communication networks within an organisation or between organisations. Their goal is to ensure the smooth operation of communication networks in order to provide maximum performance and availability for their users, such as staff, clients, customers and suppliers.

Network engineers may work internally as part of an organisation’s IT support team or externally as part of an IT networking consultancy firm working with a number of clients.

Other job titles used to refer to this kind of work include network support, support engineer, IT support engineer, helpdesk support, network administrator, first-line support, second-line support, and security engineer and network architect.
