Computer Science at a college. More specific majors are going to be at MIT or technical institutions. I'm sure things have changed, I'm a Network Engineer and have been unexposed to academia for 8 years. My biggest piece of advice is find a school that promotes internships!

I believe the correct major for a network admin type of degree would be IT&D and that just depends on how the school defines IT&D. the college I attend is a cisco network academy and concentrates on network design and administration including servers and operating systems, wireless, network design and documentation etc etc. there is also several levels of certification for all of these like cisco has ccna and ccnp. microsoft, novell and others also have several levels of certification and qualifications.

in case you had a 12-month time shrink, your perfect wager would nicely be to get a a lot a lot less-complicated certification jointly with A+ and/or community +, both from CompTIA. Getting both would really be merely right, and with those 2, the order wherein you get them does no longer count number plenty. once you're particularly pressed for time, get the community+ first with the aid of the undeniable fact which will decrease back up your adventure of being the community admin. CCNA and MCSE are better prestigious certifications than community+ and A+, yet they'd take longer than 3 hundred and sixty 5 days to end. If it type of feels you do have sufficient time, get whichever perfect applies to you. once you're in a crunch, get the community+.
