Computer Engineering





LivinBeyondDeath
Hey, I was wondering if anyone in here has/had taken computer engineering. If so was it easy? And was it worth it? Smile. I am going for this but I need to learn way more math before I go to collage Shocked because I am not as far as I should be! lol

As a university course it certainly isn't easy. However, if you are good at that sort of thing you should manage fine.

Of course, courses differ from place to place but you will likely find that they include a suprising amount of maths and quite difficult maths as well not forgetting a lot of long proofs for things like complexity and soundness.

I got As in maths and found the maths at degree level difficult.

well, computer engineering in all forms need math, I'm sorry. Programming will require advanced mathematical skills and analytical skills. You need ato have a basic knowledge of calculus for software engineering and have an analytical mathematical thought process to make it big. All the algorithms and stuff are nothing but applied mathematics.

Computer Engineering is a bit difficult, ther are quite a lot of maths subjects, and as far as i know they are:
College Algebra,
Trigonometry,
Analytic Geometry,
Differential Calculus,
Integral Calculus,
Differential Equations,
Advance Engineering Mathemathics,
Probability and Statistics
and i think there is Numerical Methods.

Anyways, Computer Engineering is the combination of Computer Science (not majorin on software) and Electronics and Computer Technician courses.
But quite interesting in Computer Engineering is the Assembly 8086 Programming, which is commonly use computer language in developing Robotics. Although Assembly programming is complicated (due to hexadecimals--w/c are computer-friendly and not user-friendly), it is best in improving your logic and understanding.

Computer Science is a nice branch but what i would suggest to you is that please don't get clumsy & always try to learn new technologies
The University syllabus is never sufficient for a Computer Science student
The branch is inherently of a dynamic nature,new technologies r evolving every day.
Internet is the best companion as far as learning is concerned.
Try to get good internship opportunities it helps a lot

I took it, it was interesting, but definitly hard. It will challenge you, but when you complete it you'll actually have a sense of accomplishment. I encourage you to take a co-op course, as in this field it is EXTREMLY important. Without any experience, it will takes possibly more then a year to find a job, no one will take a chance on you, just go to monster.ca or workopolis.com and look up computer jobs, they all want 2 - 8 years of experience in everything.

A co-op comuter science course is a good idea, I suggest you do it.

I want to go into Computer Engineering too, and I have received A's in maths but not high A's so am i still really weary about whether I can do well in that major..

I'm studying into Computer Engineering. I advise you, if you like informatic and if you can support maths, to do it. To answer many questions and as it has already been said, good knowledge in mathematic is the basis of all in computer science ( for a futur engineer ). Indeed, to improve or to create an efficient and product, you need to use some algorithms based on mathematics' therories. If you don't like and if you are sure that you won't change your opinion, don't do this. Otherwise, it's allright ! Razz

Good luck for your study !

Also the Special Functions ... which I found most difficult topic in maths. Along with this ... electronics is another major branch ... digital elctronics is quite ok but, analogue is really taugh to handle ...

I am currently studying Computer Engineering. It is certainly hard, but once you have an interest in the subject, you will eventually fell in love with it, and you never miss any topic. It is almost like a chain, if you drop earlier, you cannot catch the upper part easily. So you must learn everything related to the course successfully. And moreover, it covers everything including programming, networking, database administration, web design and programming, and a lot more. So you are not specialised yet, so you have to decide the career you want and do more certification courses related to the branch of your interest, whether it is networking or programming or somethibng else.

I wanna be a computer engineer but im only 15 so i need to study a little bit more. Cool
LivinBeyondDeath
alrighht thanx alot man! Smile it really helps me!

Computer science and Engineering is very easy to learn

it contain very intersting subjects

1. Operating system
2. Datastructures
3. Electrical and Electronics subjects (it contain basic gate function more..)

I agree with Neosry and I also studying ComputerScience in a small University at my country. At first, things are messy and tiredness. Only when you bare in your mind that what you really want to do and what attract you. It's when you work and when your life begin.
"Work is Glorious!"
Just when you do what you want and when you walk on the way that you choose despite that way is not as easy as you think!

Sincere,

maths is important for any engineering.
as computer engineering, the most important is training your ideation by learn maths.

computer == maths.
i do think so.

Maths is not everything in computer engineering. You can commonly say it, but logic is what that important. Also different portion of maths is what u need in computer engineering, not the regular one. It is mainly boolean algebra, and computer arithmatics etc.

I studied Electrical Engineering in Switzerland, but went to an American University for an Exchange Semster. There I took most courses for computer engineering majors. This was a good choice, it was very interesting.
But I realised that many people struggled with things like Hardware Description Language -> VHDL or Verilog.
This wasn't because they were not good in math, they didn't have the right sense of imagination. I wasn't a geek in math at all.. I just passed every math proof with average grades. But I believe you can be a good engineer with a good imagination and some sense for creativity. This is at least as important as the math grades. However, you should just try if it fits your needs and give it a shot.
I don't do anything related to the coursework I did at university in my actual job now... but anyway, you'll have to get a degree to get such a job. That's the way it is. Go for it!

I really want to study Computer Engineering, but I think I'll just do Computer Programming because I don't think I'm good enough.
LivinBeyondDeath
I need to start studing my math really bad if i wanna actally be able to handle this kind of work! lol

I know how to do math but doing it in my head i suck at. I need a calculator lmao Sad

i have tried sometihng like that. i can say just one thing - do what you can do, because tihs jobs scuk Wink i thought it is cool to do things like this, but in the end i decided i better do somthing more lively than computering all day around Wink

I like computer engineering and plan on going into it next year. I just hope i don't find it really challenging so that i drop out or something, lol ( hopefully not). Anyway thx for the info, any more information would be really appreciated. O ya , one more question. if i go into computer engineering, whats better to major in and where the jobs are at: Software engineering or Comp Hardware & Comp Networks . Thx guys.
