Computer Engineering Majors

Not so long ago, professionals in computer engineering usually earned electrical engineering degrees before entering the field. Today the field has spun off the bachelor in electronic engineering as the major that focuses on the microscopic electrical workings of computers, chips and digital networks.

Every year more of the best computer science schools are offering computer engineering as a major, once again spun off as the industry grows and its professions fragment into additional specialties. As late as 2004 there were only 170 accredited computer engineering programs in the United States. On the engineering side of the computer business there are students that choose specializations to focus on in their junior and senior years; computer engineering colleges continue to turn out graduates that have specific areas of expertise.

Today's computer engineering student can earn a systems engineering degree that leads to a computer systems analyst career, one of the more lucrative jobs in the field. Other choices include the network management major and one of the principal information technology majors today, information systems or MIS. Then there is the security field, one of the rapidly growing information technology majors that covers a lot of ground.

Students interested in the security issues involved in computer engineering can choose a broad major such as data administration or data management. If you are interested in the nuts and bolts of information security you can opt for a cyber security major or one of the growing fields in IT security, software design.
