I'm not sure I can totally picture what a Network Engineer does, but I can say that a Programmer is the person that writes tools usually as a way of automating how to get things or perform a task, eg writing a tool to extract the data from a database and have it return a web page based on what a person specifies by a web form. So, most of the time is spent planning out what the program looks like, writing it and then tweaking it so it works and testing it.

I'd suspect part of the Network Engineering involves setting up routers, hubs and other networking stuff.
