What is Computer Engineering
To put it bluntly, computer engineers make computer parts work together. Computer engineers are responsible for the research, design and development of computer equipment like circuit boards, microchips, routers, video cards, etc. Some universities may treat this discipline as an off-shoot of electrical engineering.
It is beneficial for computer engineers to have a grasp of computer science. Computer engineers often deal with hardware-to-software integration, meaning they have to design and build processors and hardware that can support a given program. As technology advances and our devices become smaller and smaller, a main goal of computer engineers is to create microchips and microprocessors that work economically and efficiently.
Computer engineering students will study concepts in computer science, engineering and mathematics. By combining these three fields, computer engineers are able to solve hardware problems and create state-of-the-art machines that can handle the many tasks computers perform.
For girls it can be a good choice if they have interest in this field. Let me clear one thing that any field without interest is a bad choice. If you like to study computer engineering meaning you are ready to work with computer parts, improving and maintaining these parts. In Pakistan computer engineering does not have direct scope because we don’t have computer manufacturing industries. So, you have to work within other disciplines where the work scenario is not much different from your field like in software industry, telecom industry and other manufacturing industries for the development of automated systems. Due to non-existence of computer hardware manufacturing industry, many computer engineers move to software industry. You can work in the following domains where main responsibility corresponds to computer system management and making the computer according to the required demand:
- Embedded system
- Software Engineering
- Systems Engineering
- Electrical Engineering
- Mechatronics Engineering
- Computer Sciences
- Information Technology
What can computer engineers do?
- Design and build computers and computer systems
- Research and find ways to improve the performance of processors, memory devices and other computing circuits
- Build computer systems installed in automatic devices such as cars, communication networks, air planes, and many other products.
- Also work on the software of computer-based systems.
We hope that this article helped you about scope of Computer Engineering for girls.
