Systems administrators are essential to the operation of most businesses. The system administrator is tasked with creating computer systems as well as maintaining them, troubleshooting them for co-workers, and documenting their systems. Becoming a systems administrator is a challenging profession. There is no degree that one can earn to become a systems administrator. Having a bachelor's degree in computer science or computer engineering will help, but systems administrators will primarily need to be self-taught.
