Networking can be defined as the ability to send and receive data by interconnecting multiple devices. Emailing, mobile device messaging, internet connectivity, and other modes of communication and information sharing are made possible through networking. Files and software are shared through networks, and devices, including printers and scanners, can be connected wirelessly through a network. Networking classes provide instructions for creating and employing different network types, understanding the differences between open and closed systems, and ensuring network safety and security.

An education in networking can lead to a role in designing data communication networks and ensuring system security as a computer network architect. This career has an estimated growth rate of 5% by 2028 and a median salary of $109,000. Knowledge and skill in networking are also vital to the role of a network and computer systems administrator. This job entails ensuring a network is up-to-date, secure, and efficient and administering regular upgrades to improve upon these elements of a network. The growth for this job is predicted to be 5%, and the average salary is $82,000.

Switchup is dedicated to helping people make the most informed decisions possible regarding a career in the tech industry. High-quality bootcamps in networking should offer students the opportunity to employ the fundamentals of networking in real-world scenarios.
