There are a few different types of employers computer
engineers could work for today. The first is for a major
computer company actually designing whole computer systems
for say Compaq or Macintosh. Then their are the type that
works for computer components such as peripheral systems and
microchips such as Intel (Gelenter 90). Then their are the
engineers that design everyday electronic components such as
and the demand for computer engineers is just going to keep
on growing (UCSD 1). For example Chris Kolnik (who is
studying to become a computer engineer) says that their is
Some advantages of being a computer engineer is that
you use your creativity when working on a project and can
express yourself through the computer. Another advantage is
the good pay, it is one of the highest paying fields
straight out of college. Their are some disadvantages also
like working at a computer all day and being inside the
whole time. Another disadvantage is working on the same
project for a long time and that can get boring sometimes if
you don?t have a lot of patients.
I want to be a computer engineer cause I think that
computers are very interesting machines and they are the
making computer games and so forth. I would like to be a
computer engineer mainly cause I want to do something on the
cutting edge of technology and computers are the way to go.
