I have finished graduation and currently doing Diploma course in Computer Software. I wish to do Hardware Networking courses. Please tell me about the scope in this and the best institutes in Kolkatta from where I can do the course.
In hardware networking, you should study to obtain a certification like MCSE (Microsoft Certified System Engineer), CNE (Novel Certified Network Engineer) and CCNA (Cisco Certified Network Associate). Doing a diploma from any computer institution would not help you. Of course, you can attend courses at an institution to pass the certification examination. But, well, attending an institution is not compulsory. You can study by yourself and then take the examination from a prometric testing center where you can take an online test. You can contact: NIIT, Azimgunj House, 7, Camac Street, Kolkata 700017 Wherever there is more than one computer, you will be there. You could be employed in small or medium sized firms in any industry. Alternatively, you could work for computer firms and be in charge of networking needs of your client companies. You could move to senior positions where you will work as a consultant to set up the computer infrastructures of huge projects. ISPs (Internet Service Providers) like VSNL also employ Networking Administrators for maintaining their servers and ensure smooth data transmissions to their clients. The need for connectivity is growing by the hour and technology is changing at a rapid pace. Without doubt good networking professionals are much sought after. The emergence of wireless technology such as WAP and Blue Tooth has only increased the need for skilled professionals to make sense of all these technicalities involved
