Course Overview

Network Engineers are a key occupation in most organisations which are increasingly dependent on their digital networks. As a Network Engineer you’ll provide networks and systems to deliver the objectives of varied organisations. They will make sure that systems are working at optimum capacity and problem solve where they are not. To be able to do this effectively a Network Engineer must interpret technical information and understand organisational requirements and expectations. They support delivery of legislatively compliant solutions to challenges in network and infrastructure.

The work of a Network Engineer is office-based, although they may need to work across different sites depending on the size of the organisation and their network. They deal with both hardware and software issues, and are a key part of putting things right quickly when networks fail, and they communicate problems that they have identified with network integrity or performance rapidly to ensure service is resumed and downtime minimised.
