Some quick info about the academic field of Computer Engineering?
I start classes tomorrow; I’m a junior Computer Science major. I have always been interested in computer engineering, but thought it was simply too much math and work and would take me too long (I only changed my major to Computer Science last semester). However I mapped out my courses in Computer Engineering and realized that I could get it done in the same amount of semesters as Computer Science, so all of a sudden, this window of opportunity has been opened to me.
However, I’m not entirely sure what being a Computer Engineer entails. From the classes it includes basically a minor in Computer Science, so I’m wondering
1. What kind of jobs are available for Computer Engineers, specifically? The only thing I can think of would be robotics (Which is awesome), but not much else.
2. Do the every day jobs that a Computer Engineer does include as much math as the everyday student’s curriculum? As in, Calc III (multi variable calculus), linear algebra, discrete math, etc.
I am googling away but have 24 hours to think about this, so thought I would expand my search to fluther.
