Are Online Computer Networking Degrees Worth It?

Cambridge IT Programs

“Is this online program going to be worth it?”

Many of our students reach out to us for the first time only to ask this question. After all, education is an investment, not only in money but in time. Can you start your new career by completing an online-only computer networking program? Yes, you can.

Why Obtain a Computer Networking Degree?

Computer networking is a growing field. Many of the careers found within the space are in high demand. For example, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the network administrator career is expected to grow by 4% between now and 2029.

Another example is the systems analyst career which is currently expected to grow by 7% between now and 2029. To take advantage of the growth in the computer networking space, you must obtain the knowledge you need to enter the field. The only way to do that is through an accredited computer networking program.

The Benefits of Online Degree Programs

You have choices when it comes to deciding how you want to complete your degree. Many of our students opt for online-only programs due to their many benefits, including:

  • Work/school/life balance: Online programs offer a heightened level of flexibility. If you currently work during the day, you can study at night. If you have a family you need to care for, you can do so without your studies getting in the way. Balancing is easier through an online learning program.
  • Lower costs: Although you’ll still need to pay tuition and other fees for books and supplies, you won’t need to pay for housing which can cost thousands each year. You’ll also save on your commute time which results in even more savings.
  • Study at your own pace: Through online learning, you can set a learning schedule and pace that works best for you. For example, if you find it easier to complete assignments in the mornings, you can. Or, if you need to wait to add to online discussions on a certain weekday, you can do so.
