MCSE simply stands for Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer and is actually the most widely recognized and used professional certification in the field of Information Technology, or IT for short.

In order to obtain a Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer certification, one must pass a series of tests that deal with network security, server operating systems, and also basic computer network infrastructure engineering.
