What will I learn?

Computer Engineering encompasses both Electrical Engineering and Computer Science. Computer engineering is concerned with the design of computer systems, the utilization of computing systems in the design of products and the incorporation of computer systems in products that are employed in virtually all fields of human endeavor. This requires a background in physical sciences, information sciences, electrical engineering and computer science. Computer engineering requires skills in both the design and development of computer hardware, and computer software. Depending on the need, the computer engineer may work with electrical engineers, engineers in other fields, computer scientists, information systems experts, biomedical researchers, and people in almost any other field.
