Study and apply electronics, hardware and software engineering to produce computing devices for products used in everyday life
Computer engineers build computing devices – everything from personal computers and supercomputers to systems in cell phones, household appliances and transportation. They can work with emerging technologies such as self-driving automobiles, 5G wireless and artificial intelligence.
I enjoy coding AND the more hands-on portion of learning, especially hardware. Computer engineering fits well with the balance I want.
