computer engineering

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software.

Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design and hardware integration instead of only software or electrical engineering.Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal and super computers to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work but also how they integrate their larger picture.

Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, designing VSLI chips, analog sensors, mixed signal circuit boards and operating systems. Computer engineers are also suited for robotics research, which relies heavily on digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors, communications and sensors.

In many institutions, computer engineering students are allowed to choose areas of in-depth study in their junior and senior year, because the full breadth of computer is beyond the scope of an undergraduate degree. Other institutions may require engineering students to complete one or two years of general engineering before declaring computer engineering as their primary focus
