Yes. Computer networks are vital to any business or organization in today’s technologically empowered world. The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projects growth for two major networking roles: network and computer systems administrator jobs are projected to grow by 3% nationally over the 2022-2032 period, and computer network architect jobs are also projected to grow by 4% during the same timeframe.*
As working from home becomes more widespread, computer networking professionals are likely to be needed to help enable secure sharing of organizational software, databases and other resources, and computer networking job opportunities are expected to rise accordingly.
