Computer Engineering Technology program graduates are prepared to join the work force as technical professionals in a variety of industries, including information technology. CET graduates take an applications-oriented approach to designing and implementing software, interfaces that link computers to other physical systems, and computer systems or other digital subsystems. They design software systems; create code and protocols; test and evaluate hardware and software products and processes; and diagnose and solve problems. Graduates should also possess appropriate knowledge, experience and skills to function effectively in multidisciplinary teams, adapt to changes in technical environments throughout their careers and progress in their professional responsibilities.
Some areas of specialization are:
• Software development and support
• Computer-integrated manufacturing
• Computer networking
• Information technology
• Software engineering
• Systems analysis
• Test engineering
• Technical documentation
• Applications engineering
• Embedded systems development
Major computer engineering career opportunities are available in a variety of industries, including:
• Consumer products
Even though Computer Engineering is a difficult major it's a major that's in demand. This is the field of my choice because since a young age I have been involved with technology and I have great interest for this career. Another reason this is the field of my choice its because Software engineering companies, telecommunications firms, designers of digital hardware, and many other business enterprises hire Computer Engineering majors right out of college and pay them well.
