    Linux Systems Engineer?

    What field of study would be best to get started in this field?

    I figured "Hey what better place to ask than in a Linux forum, about careers in a linux field?"


    Silly me huh?

    I work with Linux professionally on a workstation and have met quite a few Linux administrators. Most of them started out with training in something else like mechanical engineering, Windows administration, computer science, whatever, and just ended up where they are now because a job required Linux or they just explored it on their own. Nobody I've come across specifically had training for Linux administration aside from a few community college courses to get their feet on the ground. Cheers!
