computer studies > computer engineering

Hello computer geniuses,

I am presently a CS student, I would like to be a computer engineer in the future, curiously, what topics or subjects should i start studying on ??
if there is a computer engineer here, pls answer my question, that would be of great help, thank you!!!

Hello,

Well it really depends on your definition of computer engineer ... is that the technician who repairs computers, the programmer, the computer networks specialist, the cryptography researcher ? What's your definition ?

Thank you for the reply, but my definition for a computer engineer is that he is someone who expertise in dealing with circuits, electronics, knows the system of computers,
and less programming, i just want to know what i should study from now on so that it will not be hard for me to take up computer engineering topics for example calculus and other math subjects which are not all available in cs, i just want to have a strong foundation in the future..what do you tthink would those subjects be?

When you study engineering at university, the first thing your teachers find is they have to re-teach you basic maths. This is because school-teacher maths is so poor and boringly taught. All the subjects taught in your final 2 years pre-university, expecially algebra and abstract reasoning. It is vital to try to understand them, not just parrot them as rapidly as possible for exams.

Second most important is you must be INTERESTED. This means have a practical building interest that is electricity-related and enjoy work on tiny components (repairing gadgets for example and hence learning how they work)

In maths you must be able to SEE that differentiation "undoes" integration and vice versa - and know how to do it.
Hence the inportance of differential equations and statics versus dynamics (how things change).
Also, if you are that sort of person have a bash at Maxwell's equations, verctor electrodynamics, microwaves, fibre optics and photonics. The history of radio is a great introduction to "communication"
