that is great news! well, depending on what stage you are in you career right now, middle/high/college, there's actually some cool and fun and free things you can do. the Miami dade library system has a amazing STEM projects and events that as a preteen you can enjoy and participate in for free. they have a program called Zaniacs in south Miami, that you can volunteer at, its a STEM camp for little kids, and you could help to teach kids about robotics and programming. in high school, you can still participate in the library's program, or also join the robotics club at school. mostly you want to have fun doing things that revolve around the classes that you should be taking: physics, maths, science. in college, if you decide to major in computer engineering with a focus on hardware, then i would suggest something similar to what my friends and i did. we all got jobs at the IT department in the university. we all learned so much about hardware and the network, and it was great to have mentors at work that could help provide guidance and advice during the studying.

With a growing, insatiable desire for technological advancements—both by businesses and consumers alike—the need for trained, skilled and qualified computer engineering professionals seems to know no bounds. Becoming a computer engineer requires an extensive college education that can take from four to seven years to complete. In the first two years of a bachelor’s degree program, students typically finish computer engineering prerequisites and general education courses. The last two years focus on foundational classes in computer science, electrical engineering and mathematics. Students typically study software, hardware, networking and security. Many employers prefer engineers with advanced degrees, which means two more years of master’s degree work to qualify for those jobs. Finally, if professional goals include applied research or a career in academia, a PhD in computer engineering may be the answer.
