To be a good computer engineer, you must be analytical and be able to solve problems when designing either the hardware or software of a computer. Computer engineering is divided into: Computer Hardware engineering and Computer Software engineering. Both industries are growing; however, the Software Engineering has the most significant growth. It is estimated that by the 2018, it will grow in 32% while the hardware engineers will grow in a 6%.

Working as computer programmer requires constant preparation. From time to time, you will have to update your Computer Engineer Resume with the new courses and degrees that you get. The salary will depend on these courses and in the work experience you have. For example, for people who just finished the career, the salary will be around $50,000 per year; while those who have more than 10 years of experience can make around $90,000. Big companies and government organizations are the ones that pay the most.
