Computers and those professionals that maintain, troubleshoot, program, administer, network, and build them are central to most every industry. 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.
Computers can be understood in 4 areas: hardware (a focus on the basic electronic building blocks), management (administration of databases or networked computers), maintenance (diagnosis and repair of personal computers) and software (the programming and computer science needed to control the hardware). Those interested in a career in computers or information technology can pursue a B.A or B.S in computer technology. Find out what courses are offered in … Read moreRead More →
