Computer Engineering

Computer Engineer

Computer technology is at the intersection of electrical engineering and computer science. It has an impact far beyond these two areas. It has become part of a larger interdisciplinary area that covers areas from Biology & Medicine; Environmental Technology; Physics and so on.

What Does A Computer Engineer Do?

  • Computer hardware engineers research, design, develop, and test computer systems and components such as processors, circuit boards, memory devices, networks, and routers. 

  • Few professions offer the physical construction possibilities and intellectual challenge offered by computer technology

  • Computer technology is great for those who optimally use limited resources. It is for those who accurately distinguish the wishes and needs of people through computer systems.

  • Computer engineers design, test, install and maintain computer software and hardware systems. They ensure that both physical hardware and programming components work together seamlessly.

What are the skills required?

  • Critical thinking

  • Excellent communication skills

  • Project management 

  • Time management

  • Attention to details

  • Problem-solving skills

  • Great Analytical skills

How To Become A Computer Engineer In India?

Eligibility(Science) 12th PCM

Programs include analogue and digital circuit designs. As with most engineering disciplines, in-depth knowledge of mathematics and science is necessary.

  • The program offers a balanced approach to studying computer technology. There is particular emphasis on the design, integration, and maintenance of computer hardware, software, and network systems.

  • The curriculum is divided into general education and computer technology. Examples of specific fields of study are system software, digitally integrated circuit design, microcomputer systems, electrical engineering, and computer technology design.

  • Engineers should know tools that include both technical and soft skills. The main areas of knowledge in this field include engineering technologies, mathematics, networking, computer programming, computers and electronics, and product development.

  • Engineers should have a mix of practical and employment-related skills and technical knowledge. Professional certificates and references in the field of computer engineering are an advantage. They are based on the knowledge and skills acquired during the course. Advanced Credentials aim to prove technical competence in a particular aspect.

  • Online learning offers students a convenient way to complete IT studies. The main benefit for most students considering an online program is convenience.

  • For a seat at the Computer Science division in the top institute, you need a rank of under 1000 in the JEE Advanced exam.

What is the Scope for Computer Engineers in India?

  • Computer engineers also deal with mathematics, software or electrical engineering. Acquiring an MBA can help an engineer if he is interested in business management. A doctorate, on the other hand, is useful for people interested in research or teaching professions.

  • The increase in demand for technology created the demand for these specialists. Computer engineers undergo special training. Those interested in data integrity and protection help build data management systems. The military uses them and develops embedded supercomputers to create war simulations.

  • There are also many healthcare applications, including CAT scans, mobile devices, and robotics.


  • Robotics

  • Virtual Reality

  • Artificial Intelligence

  • Mobile Applications

  • Operating Systems.
