computer engineering?


Recommended Posts

You're smart, even though I'm sure you understand what I mean.

In any case, in the hardware world there is a definite advantage for a computer engineer and there is almost no foothold for computer science graduates. In other words: a computer engineer can do anything a graduate of a DMH can do, but the opposite is not true.

Look, it's starting to smell like an ego argument to me. And it's really not something I want to get into. I am not a computer science graduate and do not have a degree in computer engineering or software, I have no interest in these honor wars and degrees. I tried to point out facts and mark boundaries, but it was interpreted and led in other directions. I myself am an electrical engineer in general.

Eventually I tried to present to the opener of the discussion the benefits of studying for a longer degree which is considered more difficult, even if he does not know in advance whether he will use the knowledge he will acquire.

I wrote something very clear; There is no difference in the industry between someone who studied a three-year degree in computer science and someone who studied a four-year degree in software engineering. I did not say anything about computer engineering / electronics / electrical. This is a completely different field, and there is no point in comparing it at all.

It is also not true to say that a computer engineer can do everything a graduate of DMH can do. At the same weight you can say that he can do everything that a graduate of industry and management can do. There is no connection between the fields. In the software. Computer engineering is a degree that deals with hardware.

So again I say: I do not know what you define as "software engineering" and what is the difference between it and "computer engineering".

I am referring to a degree that combines electrical engineering with computer science. This degree definitely equips its graduates in the fields of software no less than those who have studied computer science. A computer engineering graduate can be a programmer for anything and everything and not see the tip of the iceberg, if he wants to. On the other hand, it can also engage in chip development. He has more diverse options to choose his path.

It could be that the software engineering you are referring to is a kind of computer science with some extensions. And if so, then what you are saying sounds logical about this profession. As stated, I am referring to the combined degree.

And what does that have to do with industry and management? They are far out of the scope of this debate.

I am a computer engineering student in Hebrew second year .. What I have to tell you about the comparison with a degree in computer science .. is that taking your degree will add to it a lot and a lot, a lot of physics courses mainly, you can take courses that focus more on electricity and electronics. 'But it's not electrical engineering .. In Hebrew there is also a track of computer engineering and specialization in optoelectronics the difference is that in year XNUMX they do more courses in physics and less in mathematics than us .. it is still software with touches of electricity ..

Regarding the job market .. I have friends in all directions one who studied computer science and programming at Intel and the other computer engineering and deals with information security at Check Point in short everyone is screwed somewhere, I guess there is an advantage for a sex engineer probably his knowledge is much more extensive and in-depth .. Will look at it this way and which not.

Hi friends, thanks for the comments.

I am seriously thinking about the direction of computer engineering, more inclined to go there.

Anyone know a way I can actually mess around a bit with "What is learning electricity?" (Beyond the syllabus level, it does not mean much to me)

I want to try some practice (even if it means solving nasty hooks) and see if it interests me.

Tov_Tov, you're basically saying that the degree tends to 65% of DMH 35% electricity? It's not half half?

Most, if not all, of the equations you solve in electrical engineering studies anyway will not be relevant to your practical work in the future. You need to know and understand how things work to be a good engineer, but you are not sitting and really solving math problems with pen and paper.

In any case, there is no way you can experience this without a background of previous courses. If I were to give you a partial differential equation now in a wave propagation course, you still do not have the tools to deal with it.

There is no way to experiment, since you will not think that it is all day to learn how to design circuits or solder resistors and capacitors or something like that ..

If you still want a more materialistic direction go for the second track (microoptics) in the end they learn a lot more physics and more "electricity" yet it is not electrical engineering just more courses in this field ..

As many have said it is mostly theoretical knowledge that should give you a deeper understanding of the overall picture of software versus hardware ..
