Computer engineers work in most industries, including computing, automobile, aerospace, telecommunications, power production, manufacturing, defence and electronics. You could design high-tech devices ranging from tiny integrated-circuit chips, to powerful systems that utilise those chips and efficient telecommunication systems.
Likely jobs for graduates include computer network administration under Windows and Unix/Linux, as well as software engineering and design using Java and C++. You could also work independently as a developer, tester or evaluator of any kind of hardware and software application. You’ll be able to develop operating systems, compilers, computer games, business applications, computer programs, analyse data and constructing and managing computer systems. In short, you’ll be highly employable in a wide variety of sectors.
