engineers pilot trains.
Administrator would be management with technical skills.
Engineer would be mostly technical with some management.
one administrates, the other engineers.
Depending on the company, this is sometimes nothing more than a semantic difference. I assume you're jobhunting--the listing details will often tell you much more than the posted job title.
Sysadmin = IT guy, keeps the servers up and running basically.
Systems engineer = Guy who designs and/or develops information systems
Two entirely unrelated jobs.
This job descriptions are usually across the board.
I have found a sys admin keeps it going and the engineer figures it out.
In most jobs I think it's usually sys admin and net engineer though. One does the soft stuff which can be hard and one does the hard stuff which can be easy.
Technical definitions define them differently; in many companies, however, they are combined into one position.
at my company, engineer > admin
One of them is a blonde?
edit: they do not work on the same things. A sys admin is like mugs said, someone who works on servers/networks. A systems engineer designs systems (circuits) that go into things, not necessarily networks.
Systems engineer is all about the process.
I'm called a systems admin because I do ever freaking thing. "Systems" and "Admin" are broad terms technologically.
So should Systems Engineer take MCSE while Systems Admin take MCSA?
At the last place I work, a systems admin and systems engineers were completely unrelated jobs.
Sys admin = administer of networks/computers
Sys engineer = engineer with broad abilities in electrical, mechanical, etc engineering to help oversee the development of an actual product.
LOL neither one should take either of those. They are about as common as a $1 bill these days... And worth about just that much
Around here all systems engineers have at least a BS in EE. Many have their masters as well.
