How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Computer Engineering course?

Good with Numbers

You probably think of math as another language, as it comes as naturally as a reflex to you. Computer engineers will need to master numbers, which will be incorporated at every step of production process.

Versatile

Computer engineers help perfect all kinds of technology, including ranging from mobile phones to even cars and trucks, which require hundreds of microprocessors, which in turn will require versatility on the part of a computer engineer.

Good with Computers

No, being good at DOTA doesn’t count, or any other RTS game for that matter. You need to understand hardware and software when it comes to computers, everything inside and out, so that you’ll be able to fix and manage any issues that are bound to arise in processes involving computers.
