Telecommunications Network Engineers


The outlook for telecommunications network engineers is bright. The Department of Labor predicts faster than average employment growth (5 percent) for computer network architects and related workers through 2029. In 2020, the coronavirus pandemic caused many businesses to conduct their work remotely, which has increased the demand for networking infrastructure and connectivity. The long-term impact of the pandemic on the telecommunications industry is not yet known, but telecommunications network engineers will continue to be needed well into 2021 and beyond. More companies are expected to expand their telecommunications networks in the coming years; demand will likewise increase for help with designing and building these networks, as well as upgrading existing networks. Telecommunications network engineers with a bachelor's degree in computer science or related field, prior relevant experience, certification, and knowledge of the latest technologies will have the best job prospects.
