Site Reliability Engineers

Education and Training Requirements

High School

In high school, take as many computer science classes as possible. Recommended courses include computer programming, computer security, computer networking, and software development. Develop your math skills by taking algebra, calculus, linear algebra, discrete mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics classes. Site reliability engineers write a lot of reports and frequently attend meetings to discuss ongoing issues, so you should take English and speech courses to help build your oral and written communication skills. Philosophy and social studies classes will help you to develop your analytical and critical-thinking abilities. If you plan to become a consultant, you should take business, marketing, and accounting classes.
