BS Computer Engineering: Course Description

If you’re interested in pursuing a tech-related career, computer science (CS) and information technology (IT) are two good options.  What if you’re not really into either one, though?  Fortunately for you, a third option exists—that of computer engineering.

If you’re like me, you’re probably wondering what the difference is between all three courses.  Let’s find out.

Engineer is as Engineer Does

Merriam-Webster defines engineering as “managing, constructing, laying or planning” something out.  That’s precisely what computer engineers do.  In fact, if you take a look at their course’s offerings, you’ll see a lot of intriguing subjects on topics like electrical circuitry, analog electronics, microprocessors and even robotics.

Of course, future computer engineers also get to study certain “standard issue” subjects along with their CS and IT peers—programming, operating systems, computer science, and the like.  Throw in some math, physics and engineering science and you’ve got yourself a formidable combination.

Funneling Down

If the computer science major focuses on programming and the IT major focuses on managing systems, the computer engineer’s strength lies in designing and testing electronic products.  This is evident in the kinds of inventions that come out of their practicum:  robots, transportation and VR systems, video game consoles and accessories, and what not.

It’s precisely this attention to detail that makes the computer engineer an excellent complement to the computer scientist and the information technology specialist.  If you want to see what synergy can do, just put all three experts together and watch what happens.
