Yes. Computer networks are vital to any business or organization in today’s technologically empowered world. Prior to the start of 2021, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) projected growth for two major networking roles. Network and computer systems administrator jobs were projected to grow by 4% nationally over the 2019-2029 period. Computer network architect jobs were also projected to grow by 5% 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.
