Majoring in Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is a logical choice of major for problem solvers who enjoy technical work. A computer engineer’s job is to work with computer hardware, software, systems, and networks to improve the efficiency of all kinds of devices. Someone with a degree in computer engineering can find work in many fields including IT, the consumer electronics industry, and the video game industry. A computer engineer with a bachelor’s degree can command a starting salary above $60,000 annually. Bachelor’s students will need to study subjects like technical writing, microprocessor applications, engineering mechanics, and thermodynamics. Students can typically complete a bachelor’s degree in four years with between 120 and 130 credit hours of coursework. Ideally, students will begin working on this major early by taking introductory courses in their freshman or sophomore year in college.
