Looking to get a job in computer engineering? Given that it’s a mix of computer science and engineering (two of the university majors with the highest drop out rates) it may seem like there are just too many skills you need to learn!

Here are some of the skills you will need to add to your CV if you are going to be a computer engineer:
Remember that computers all run on data, which is basically mathematics in its purest form. Computer engineering requires excellent math skills, both for the construction of hardware and the programming of software. It’s time to brush up on those math skills if you really want to become a computer engineer.
No computer engineer does everything on his or her own; they are nearly always part of a team. Being part of a team means you will need to be able to communicate well, interact with others, and stay abreast of team progress.
3. Software Engineering
As a computer engineer, a good deal of your work will be performed by the software on your computers. You will need to know how to design a program, write the code, and then test the software for bugs. You will need to know how to write scripts, software test procedures, compatibility, and MORE – all related to software.
