Computer Network Administrator

Job Overview

Computer network administrators have a solid understanding of how computers work. They can fix small and large problems. They are the backbone of the company because they oversee the day-to-day maintenance and upkeep of all the computer and network systems.

The energy industry is a highly digitized workplace. Numerous kinds of networks are used ranging from networks of computers and printers within one building to complex operational networks linking automated equipment, to connecting computers across the globe.

A computer network administrator installs, configures, and supports a company’s local area network (LAN), wide area network (WAN), including internet systems or specific segments of a network system. These networks are increasingly wireless. Computer Network Administrators support system users, including troubleshooting users’ computer or network issues and may perform maintenance to address these issues.

Computer network administrators usually work in teams within large companies but may be the sole IT/network expert in a smaller company.
