Wireless Network Engineer

Organizations are becoming more and more dependent on wireless technology to connect remote and mobile workers to the company network. Wireless network engineers design, implement, and optimize a company’s wireless LAN and other wireless technologies.

Wireless network engineering is on the cutting edge of data communications technology. According to a 2009 Cisco survey, 65 percent of IT managers expected to add dedicated wireless networking job roles in coming years.

A bachelor-level computer engineering or computer science degree is the baseline qualification for a career as a wireless network engineer. Many engineers reach this advanced role by continuing on to a MS in computer engineering or an MBA in information systems. Certifications such as the Certified Wireless Network Expert (CWNE) or Cisco Certified Internetwork Expert (CCIE) also play an important role in keeping wireless network engineers up to date in the latest WLAN and remote networking technology.
