What Is Networking?

Computer network architects design and build data communication networks, including local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), and Intranets. These networks range from small connections between two offices to next-generation networking capabilities such as a cloud infrastructure that serves multiple customers.

Computer networks are critical parts of almost every organization. Network and computer systems administrators are responsible for the day-to-day operation of these networks.

Computer support specialists provide help and advice to computer users and organizations. These specialists either support computer networks or they provide technical assistance directly to computer users.

Salary Outlook

In Missouri, computer network architects earn an averages of $104,650. Network and computer system administrators earn an average of $81,100 per year. Computer network support specialists earn an average of $52,810 per year.
