Computer Engineering provides the opportunity to work in the continuously changing technology sector. With the development of faster hardware components, new communication systems and software there is a demand for computer Engineers. Computer Engineering students study the design of digital hardware and software systems. Computer Engineering encompasses a wide range of topics including operating systems, computer architecture, computer networks, robotics, artificial intelligence and computer-aided design. An important area within computer engineering is the development of embedded system devices such as cell phones, digital audio players, digital video recorders, alarm systems, x-ray machines and laser surgical tools which require integration of hardware and embedded software and these are all the result of computer engineering.

Software engineering companies, telecommunications firms, designers of digital hardware and many other business enterprises hire Computer Engineers right out of college and pay them well.
