Experience is important. And the ability of solve problems is also important. You have to make sure you love this career, instead of pursuing a salary. Because the computer engineer is not suited for everybody.

Hi, Reinaldo,

I think Ronold's answer is spot-on! You will need a degree to become a highly paid computer engineer. There are different types of computer engineers. Each company pays differently according to your location, your job level, and type of engineer you are. Some companies pay according to performance. As a computer engineer, this means keeping on top of that ever-changing environment, always learning, getting new certifications and more experience. Take a look at Glassdoor for specific company salaries: https://www.glassdoor.com/Salaries/index.htm
