    Not without more training… Part of my degree is to train to be a Systems Analyst and it is very complex.

    Here’s a list of some of the types of diagrams you are required to be able to design…

    I did. I have a BS in Business Administration with a concentration in Business Systems. Computers have come a long way in the past 20+ years. PCs have made a huge impact in the field. I started as an entry level programmer. With time and experience, I began doing analyst work. However, my experiences are strictly software. If you prefer the technical/hardware part, it is still possible. It will depend largely on the company you work for. Try to find any starting position with a company that will allow you to grow in the direction you desire. Unfortunately, some companies look strictly for Computer Science degrees, but don’t let that stop you. Find some company that will allow you to get started then let your skills and experiences guide you. You may have to change employers to follow your desired job. Always be willing to change and adapt. Many company executives are still computer illiterate.
