The career of computer engineering has been growing exponentially for the last 20 years. With constant need for repair, development, or modification, this field has boundless possiblities. As people become more and more reliant on computers, this need for engineers will only increase. Currently, there are many ways to be a computer engineer. There are research engineers who work on future systems to be released into the market. They develop new ideas and concepts for upcoming products and lay the groundwork for other engineers. There are also development engineers who create new products, systems, and applications. They take the ideas from the research engineers and decide how it will be created. Finally, there are also product and manufacturing engineers who transform laboratory creations into things that can be manufactured.
All of these engineers have the same general type of job in the end. They work to improve or manufacture computers in one way or another. They work with both hardware and software to develop new and better ways to make computers work.
