What do computer engineers do?

  • Design silicon chips
  • Combine chips to design systems
  • Invent new systems and design entire networks
  • Develop system-level software to help devices run faster and more efficiently
  • Help chips, systems, and networks recover from failure
  • Invent new chips, systems, and networks to solve problems
Computer engineering majors focus on:

  • Understanding, diagnosing, and fixing design issues
  • Using advanced CAD tools
  • Working on interdisciplinary teams
  • The science of computer design

Computer engineering is an interdisciplinary field combining hardware with software, chip architecture with communications, quality control with design.
