Top Computer Engineering Universities In 2021-2022

About Computer Engineering

Computer Engineering is the discipline of engineering where we study electronics & its components which are related to computing like microprocessor, microcontroller & computers along with softwares, programming & its designing.

Subjects you need to study in Computer Engineering are statistics, calculus, programming languages, microprocessor, microcontroller, system designs, embedded systems, computer system & its architecture.

Duties of Computer Engineer

We can divide computer engineers duties into two parts, first duties for computer hardware engineers & second duties for computer software engineers.

Computer hardware engineers oversee  manufacturing, installation, assembling  and testing of computer systems, servers, networking devices, circuit boards & its working.

Computer software engineers build programs/software using different languages and platforms. There are different types of software like

Operating systems (interact between hardware & user)

Firmware ( essential software to use hardware)

Application software ( Design to perform prespecific tasks)
