Why study Electrical and Computer Engineering?
Most of the world's computers are embedded computers - computers that are hidden within cars, appliances, digital cameras, MP3 players, phones and other devices. Electrical and Computer engineering is concerned with the design and management of computer-based systems, including embedded systems and more conventional computers such as personal computers (PCs) and personal digital assistants (PDAs). Electrical and Computer engineers have skills and knowledge in digital logic design, computer networks, embedded and desktop operating systems, microcontroller selection and programming, electronics, telecommunications and signal processing.
