Computer engineering


Computer Engineering (also sometimes called Computer Systems Engineering) is a specialiseddiscipline that combines electrical engineering and computer science . A computer engineer is an electrical engineerwith a focus on digital logic systems, and less emphasis on radiofrequency or power electronics. From a computer science perspective, a computer engineer is a software architect with afocus on the interaction between software programs and the underlying hardwarecomponents.

Computer engineering degrees have been added to a number ofschools' degree programs since the early 1990s . Some schools have integrated computerengineering, along with software engineering , into theirelectrical engineering departments, while others such as MIT have chosen to merge electricalengineering and computer science departments instead.

Since computer engineers are mainly focused on electronics and computers, their courseloads tend to involve fewer courses on natural sciences such as statics or dynamics than traditionalengineering programs. Instead, courses on fundamentals of computer sciences are taught.

Areas of Specialty (Theoretical)

Areas of speciality (Professional)

There are a whole lot of specializations within computer engineering :

  • System Architecture : Overall organization of the computer; division of work between hardware and software;interfaces.
  • RTL/Chip design : Conversion of architecture to a hardware specification
  • Layout : Conversion of design to transistors
  • Fabrication Process : Development of the underlying semiconductor technology.
  • Package/Board design : Designs of PCBs andpackages.
  • System Integration : Construction of the whole computer using multiple chips and boards.
