The branches of electrical engineering include:
The growth of electronics has been accelerated by the space age and the emergence of the high speed digital computer.
There is hardly a segment of the economy that has not been influenced by electronics. The computer has found its way into virtually all aspects of modem life.
A student wishing to specialize in computer engineering will find appropriate electives available. The wide use of electrical means of measurement, control and computation has resulted in the need for electrical engineers in all types of industries. Varied employment opportunities are available.
Computer engineering applies computer technology along with traditional engineering science to address systems in which computing is an essential function. Such systems include the smart device or instrument, the flexible manufacturing system and communication system that characterizes the information age.
Computer engineering covers a demanding range of science and technology, combining software with hardware, and the discrete with the continuous.
