“The Bachelor of Science program in Computer Engineering is designed to give a student a strong background in the fundamentals of mathematics, physics, and computer engineering and science. A graduate of this program should be able to use these fundamentals to analyze and evaluate computer systems, both hardware and software.” This would be a basic description of what my program is about and what I should be able to do after I complete my graduation. Technology is such a fast and progressive movement in the 21st century and I would like to be able to be apart of the progress, understand how it works and contribute to the cause. I think it would be cool to be able to design the technologies and devices that everyday people use to download songs, post status updates and useapplications. This program will teach me how to logically think through a problem and find a logical solution. Computer Science and Engineering offers me an endless amount of opportunities after I graduate and I’m sure that I will have jobs lined up even before I graduate. Computing jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction. There actually are more computing jobs than qualified people to fill them in the United States. Having a computing major will provide me with a foundation of knowledge, problem solving and logical thinking that will serve as a competitive advantage in whatever type of career field I choose.
