Computer Engineering

Computer engineering is a field of immense scope and opportunities. This is the reason why a plethora of students looks forward to pursuing computer engineering more. Computer Engineering is a field of engineering that deals with developing and evolving computer hardware and software. It integrates software development and design, hardware-software integration, and electronic management of computer systems, dealing with circuit designing, the aspects of computing, design, and control of microcontrollers, microprocessors, PC, supercomputers, and so on.    

Scope of Computer Engineering

Due to the rapidly growing technology field and IT sector, the scope of computer engineering in India has risen quite high these few years. Corona and the quarantine system added to the increased digitization of all services and transactions that the IT sector is blooming into a large field from a small flower garden.   Computer Engineering or B. Tech in Computer science is a very vast system that educates students on the foundation of different systems, computer architecture and organization, networking, database systems, OS, programming, website designing, computation, e-commerce, software and hardware studies, multimedia applications and so on. Ten to thirty lakhs per annum are offered to employers after the successful completion of diploma and B.Tech in CS. Students who look for governmental organizations for employment appear for the GATE examination, whose scorecard is evaluated by the organization to which they want to be recruited. MNCs, NGOs, and private firms like Wipro, Google, Infosys, HCL, Facebook, Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Flipkart, IBM, Adobe, etc., give computer engineers opportunities to shine.     

Computer engineers can be employed at private firms, software companies, banks, public sector, colleges and universities, IT firms, government organizations, media and entertainment industry, PR, advertising and communication, finance companies, research labs, medical field, digital consultancy firms, armed forces, and other sectors.
