The field of Computer Engineering is an amalgamation of diverse fields including Electrical Engineering and Computer Science which is required to develop computer hardware and software. The Computer Engineering students undergo training in Electronics, Electricals, Software Design and Hardware-Software apart from software basics and training. Computer engineers are required to have knowledge of computer Hardware, Software, Microprocessors, Microcontrollers and also circuit design.
Usually the task of Computer Engineers is to write software codes and should have the knowledge of diverse fields including Programming Languages, Database, Logic Gates, Artificial Intelligence, User Interface, controlling of Microcontrollers, Embedded Systems, Operating Systems. Computer engineers are also suited for robotics research, which relies heavily on using digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors, communications, and sensors.
The computer engineering department was established in 2009. The department offers regular undergraduate program in “Computer Engineering” having intake of 60, affiliated to University of Mumbai.
