Your are definitely NOT alone when it comes to interest in computer science/engineering. In fact this has been the hottest branch of engineering for more than five years. There is great competition to get into the better colleges that grant a computer engineering degree. But there is also great demand for good computer engineers. The starting salaries out of college are probably the highest of any engineering discipline. One great program is provided by my own Alma Mater, the University of Washington. The computer engineering building on this campus has been largely funded by Paul Allen, co-founder of Microsoft. And the huge Microsoft Campus, as well as the even larger Amazon HQ are both nearby, in the Seattle area.
Good Luck, Pete Sturtevant, PE
