Welcome to Indigenous Futures in Engineering, Queen's University



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


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

If you like...
