Think back — when was the last day you didn’t use a computer?
The fact that you’re reading this web page right now is proof enough.
Gadgets of every kind are a huge part of our daily lives.
They’re in our pockets, in our living rooms, and soon, on our faces. (Hello Google Glass.)
From designing hardware to developing software, the computer engineer is an architect for the digital age.
Imagine inventing a robot that assists the physically disabled.
Or a speech recognition program that helps keep pilots and their aircrafts safer.
Computer engineers create the tools that empower us and inspire us.
If you’ve ever tinkered with a motherboard or built an iPhone app, this could be the path for you.
