A systems administrator (or system administrator, or sysadmin) installs and maintains an organization’s computer networks. This can include local area networks (LANs), wide area networks (WANs), intranets, web servers, security systems, and software and hardware upgrades. Systems administrators can work in any industry.

There is no single path to becoming a systems administrator. You can get started in some cases with an associate’s degree or no degree and some experience; however, a bachelor’s degree in a field related to computer science or information technology is encouraged. Most important are computer and problem solving proficiency, as you’ll be using both on a daily basis. You also need to be able to learn new technologies quickly.
