What does a normal day for a computer engineer look like?
I am conflicted on which type of engineer I want to study. I am leaning more towards technology and computer based because I am taking a computer programming course. #computer-engineering #engineering #technology
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.
Lev recommends the following next steps:
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.
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.
