Computer Networking is #3 among the fastest-growing occupations between 2014 and 2024. Employment of network and computer systems administrators is expected to increase by 13 percent from 2014 to 2024, as fast as the average for all occupations. Computer networks are an integral part of business, and demand for these workers will increase as firms continue to invest in new technologies. The increasing adoption of mobile technologies means that more establishments will use the Internet to conduct business online. This growth translates into a need for systems administrators who can help organizations use technology to communicate with employees, clients, and consumers. Growth will also be driven by the increasing need for information security.
