Systems Engineering Career Training Can Lead to High Salaries and a Stable Job

What's Involved in a Systems Engineering Career?
Systems engineers, also called systems software engineers, oversee the creation, maintenance, and development of a company's computer systems. They work with that company to determine what each department needs while also offering technical advice. They sometimes help to establish that company's intranet systems as well.

Systems Engineering Online and College Degrees
While graduate college degrees are preferred by many employers for the most complex jobs, many people can enter this field with a bachelor's degree in computer science or computer information systems. You can then enhance your career opportunities by seeking out an internship that provides practical, hands-on experience. Some large companies do provide additional training for less experienced graduates.

You can also choose to obtain additional certification. This should not take the place of a college degree, but it can open up new job prospects. For instance, Microsoft offers the Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer (MCSE) credential. Some online schools offer degrees or certifications in this area.

In a systems engineering career, you can earn a median annual salary of $92,430.
