A tech center administrator is a technical professional who works for an organization, a company, or an educational institution and is responsible for maintaining computers, networks, telecommunications, audio-visual equipment, and other related technologies for those organizations. These individuals set up computers, email accounts, phone systems, and other related functionality for staff and customers and work to ensure that all of these systems are maintained and repaired as needed. A tech center administrator works directly under a tech supervisor, is typically on-call during the workday, and responds to inquiries, customer issues, and conducts regular quality control tasks for all company systems.
Most tech center administrators have an associate's or a bachelor's degree in information technology (IT), computer science, engineering, or a related field and should have a firm grasp of all aspects of computer, network, and multi-media technologies. These individuals should have strong analytical, observational, communication, and problem-solving skills and should be comfortable working with other administrative teams and customers.
A tech center administrator can make up to $44,000 per year, and the career field is expected to grow 10% in the next ten years.
