What is Computer Engineering?

Computer Engineering (CEN) has been a distinct discipline for over 30 years. It is concerned with the design, programming and use of computing structures, large and small.

Computer engineering is a discipline that embodies the science and technology of design,
construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of
modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment. Computer engineering has
traditionally been viewed as a combination of both computer science (CS) and electrical
engineering (EE).

Computer engineers have training in electronic engineering, software design and hardware-software integration. They are involved in many aspects of computing, from the design of individual microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture of the specific application.

Computer Engineering Careers

The career options for CEN graduates are extremely varied and diverse, ranging from embedded systems to large-scale servers; from software to hardware design etc. This major has seen and continues to see a very healthy growth in employment.

Computer software engineers are one of the occupations projected to grow the fastest and add the most new jobs over the next decade.

Excellent job prospects are expected for applicants with at least bachelor’s degree in computer engineering or computer science and with practical work experience.

Computer software engineers must continually strive to acquire new skills in conjunction with the rapid changes that occur in computer technology”.
