MCSE Job Role

A Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer, also known as a senior systems administrator, network analyst, infrastructure engineer, network architect and network designer, is an IT professional who designs and manages an organization’s Microsoft LAN networks. This includes choosing (or at least recommending) the hardware and software to meet an organization’s IT needs as well as managing the rolling out of new equipment and systems, and ensuring that corrective and preventative measures are performed on existing equipment and systems.

Duties of a network engineer include the analysis of an organization’s business needs and then the related design, implementation and maintenance of the network infrastructure to support those business needs. This role has overlap with that of a Microsoft Certified Systems Administrator but is higher level in that analysis and design work is done in addition to the possible sourcing of equipment. Network engineering is a highly technical role. A very good understanding of available network operating systems, network equipment and networking protocols is essential, as well as is the ability to program scripts and batch files. Strong interpersonal skills are also important, as the network engineer must understand the networking needs of not just users but the organizations as a whole and be able to sell management on the best infrastructure solutions. Lastly, a network engineer must be able to create network plans, get various technologies to talk to each other and know which ones just won’t communicate well, document the existing network infrastructure, negotiate with technical solution providers, and troubleshoot and find solutions to problems that lower level staff can’t solve.
