Lev’s Answer

Computer engineers spend most of their day reading, writing and debugging code. Engineers may also participate in product, marketing, sales, customer support, etc. discussions if there is a reliance on software.


It is a lot of fun to build new things when one is writing code, but there is also a need to read existing code in order to understand the system to add new functionality or fix bugs.


I'd be happy to answer in more detail any follow up questions you may have.

Ratan’s Answer

Computer engineering as such is a broad field that would mean both hardware and software. There is still lot of innovation happening on hardware side but more fun and creative work in happening on software side.

You should go in software engineering if you like coding and programming as you will spend significant time in the day to write or review code from your team members. software engineering is in demand and one of the highest paid jobs in the world. Though, you have to have interest to succeed in this field. If you don't enjoy programming then there are other areas that you can explore as well like product manager who think about create ideas and program management who helps in putting project plan together or UI design if you are a creative person and like to UI design new concepts.

First thing is to evaluate your interest like you want to go in hardware or software and then do you enjoy to work in specific industry like Finance, technology, aerospace, commerce etc then do your internship in those industries to learn more about that space.

Bash’s Answer

You should definitely go into technology. The US does not graduate enough people a year to meet demand so they have to lobby congress to increase Visa allowances. There are many areas you can choose to get into. Whether is User Interface design and development using JavaScript or using a Development Environment like Microsoft Visual Studio Integrated Development software or the Open-Source Eclipse, a lot of which offer you option to design web apps a.
Or you can get into programming to develop more heavy-lifting software code which handles business logic . Or venture into the Database world and learn that part of the system and build up your skills.
The possibilities are endless. You just have to choose an area you like.
Hope this helps.
