    Every time I boot up, the computer asks me if I want to join a network (I'm at work so the computer no longer senses my home network)

    I have to select "Join other network", type in the encryption method (WPA2 Enterprise), type in my user name, and password each time.

    Is this meant to be a security protocol for encrypted networks?

    Or is there a way for my Mac to see this network when booting up, and automatically apply my encryption and username/password?

    Thanks!

    You should be able to "remember this network" in that dialog box that pops up.

    However you can get it through system preferences - Network - Airport - (can deselect ask to join networks here if you want) - Advanced.

    Then you can add the network you want there and select "remember this network" and it should connect automatically to it next time.
