I want to work as a Network Engineer eventually?

I am currently in the Navy working with IT. After I get out I am starting on a Bacholers program in Information Technology. When I graduate I will have my Network+, CCNA, and MCSE certifications. During college I will be able to work, "Basic Networking jobs" because of my time in the Navy. IF I kept on this path, could I eventually become a Network Engineer, or is there something else I need?

Why, because I can make a lot more then I can with 3 MCSE's. I would recommend you pursue the CCNP instead of the MCSE after you get the CCNA... More
