Electrical engineers and computer engineers design and develop anything and everything that uses electricity: from the power systems that bring electricity to our homes and communication systems that allow us to keep in touch with family and friends, to the electronic devices, electrical appliances, computers, sensors, and medical equipment that shape our everyday lives. Typical careers may find computer engineers collaborating with medical doctors to model and simulate complex systems, embedding computers in advanced communications and transportation networks, and interacting with other engineers and professionals in the design of new kinds of computational devices. Many computer engineering graduates work as scientists, inventing new kinds of electronic technology, programming new kinds of instruments, and developing new devices to help people.
