Computer engineers work with designing and making electronic circuits and devices, in all types of products from smart phones to cars to rockets.

Examples

Computer engineers:

  • Figure out how much information you can store on a hard drive. A hard drive is the memory or “the brain” of the computer
  • Figure out what instructions a computer needs in order to turn on and move information around
  • Design cables which link computers together to make networks
  • Develop devices like printers, scanners, and digital cameras

In your community

Is your community hooked up to the Internet? Can you surf from home or only at school? As a computer engineer you could figure out your community's computing needs and help the local band or tribal council determine the best way to fix these problems
