Programming This forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

Question Computer Engineering


Hi,
I know it's not something about programming but programmers may answer!

Here where I live, there is a field of engineering names "Computer Engineering". After passing about 7 semesters you can choose Hardware or Software and you will be caledl a Hardware/Software Engineer after BS.
Now I have a question. Is it the same case in your country, and you have two fields of high education with the names Hardware and Software Engineering?

Ya, my sheep skin says Computer Engineering on it. My major ran parallel to Electrical Engineering (they called it the School of Electrical and Computer Engineering). Only difference between the two (CompE vs. EE) was an extra discrete math class for CompE's and I had a few classes chosen for me while EE's had a few extra in major elective choices.

The basic curriculum was 5 calculus classes, statistics, differential equations, discrete math, basic physics (particle dynamics/emag), 3 cs theory classes, circuits classes, emag for EE's, architecture, vlsi, dsp, ect. ect. Basically the same CompE/EE stuff you get any any accredited school in the US. They also had a CS major which didn't have the emag, circuits, vlsi, dsp but had a lot more programming and programming theory type classes.

It has changed a little but this site has the basic class outline I went through and it is very similar to programs at other schools I know graduates from.

We have in ECE department two majors CompE, and ElecE both of them (even whoever wants to be a software eng.) have to take an "Electric Circuits" and "Electronic Circuits". I know that they are essential for H.W Engs,, but not for SW Engs. Is it the same out there?

Ya, the software guys around here typically don't take circuits classes.
