|Description:||Computer Engineering is a discipline that combines the best of both worlds i.e., design of hardware (Electronic Engineering) and software (Computer Science) components. The programming component of computer engineering is focused on digital devices and their interfaces with other devices and users. Computer engineering including the design and development of embedded systems play central roles today and into the future. These systems are encountered in everyday systems that we use: cell phones, digital audio players, X-ray systems, cars, and many others.
