Endless Career Opportunities


From heart-rate monitors and refrigerators to laptops and mobile phones, computerized gadgets are everywhere. More and more of these gadgets are communicating and coordinating through networks to massive cloud computing centers that are distributed around the world.

Not only do computer engineers design computers and digital equipment, but they also design software that runs on the computers and develop algorithms that are implemented by the software.

Computer engineers work with all aspects of information whether it is voltage levels on a wire, streams of bits moving between mobile phones, files distributed across tens of thousands of servers, or new concepts that are trending on Twitter.

Computer engineers work to ensure that the systems they design are resilient to hackers, cyber threats and system failures. Computer engineers are at the forefront of today’s cybersecurity challenges.

Today’s computer engineers brought us the internet in our connected world. How will you change the future as a computer engineer?
