3 highly technical Computer Engineering jobs
Upon thinking randomly about computer engineering, the terms that instantly come on the top of our minds are hardware, software, programming, hardware machines etc. All these terms give us a fair idea about how technical the field of computer engineering is. From understanding the syntax of programming to learning how machines work inside a system, computer engineers have to navigate through these technical subjects in software and hardware engineering. IT companies understand this and thus recruit computer engineers under really good salaries for their knowledge in respective domains. This is one of the reasons why computer engineering is highly sought after course amongst top engineering colleges in Pune.
After graduating as a computer engineer, most of the job opportunities will require you to have a strong technical background. Let’s take a look at the 3 highly technical computer engineering jobs.
1. Software Engineer
In this day and age, the corporate world is filled with software used for commercial purposes, but there aren’t enough personnel to handle it. Hence, there is an incredible demand for software engineers in the market. Software engineers are responsible for the development, maintenance, testing and evaluation of the software on a regular basis. They are also expected to possess knowledge of coding and be thorough with its practical use. Coding is a technical subject and just like software engineering, can be hard to learn and is a difficult job. But then again, the hardest tasks have the sweetest rewards.
2. Hardware Engineer
Hardware engineers are tasked with designing, developing, testing, and producing computer systems and various components of these systems. In case of a technical snag, hardware engineers should be able to identify and solve the problem. The scope of the above process and problems don’t just limit to computers. Hardware engineering has extended to other fields like Research & Development, mechanical engineering, automobile engineering, mobiles, robotics etc. Hence, there are not only plenty of job opportunities for mechanical engineers but also gives them the option to switch jobs to different fields.
3. Professional ethical hackers
To counter ‘black hat hackers’, the online world needs ‘white hat hackers’. The white hat hackers are none other than professional ethical hackers. Professional ethical hackers are tasked to remove malicious software and content that can harm the reputation of a person, community or organisation. In terms of the IT industry, ethical hackers use various networking systems to prevent organizations, firms, and businesses from cyber attacks and other potential vulnerabilities. These helps in protecting data from getting stolen or leaked. Ethical hacking isn’t just limited to the IT industry. Even state and national governments hire ethical hackers for security reasons.
In order to be a professional hacker, one has to obtain various ethical hacking certificates to prove their credentials. Through these certifications, the person will develop the mindset of a hacker and will assess every logical and physical security to find weak points that need to be fix.
These are the 3 technical jobs you will come across after graduating as a computer engineer from one of the top engineering colleges in Pune. Computer engineering is a vast field. Choose a job profile that best suits your qualities and skill set.
