How Can JobTestPrep Help?

At JobTestPrep, we devote time and energy to developing tests that are strikingly similar to those assessments that companies administer to applicants competing for the position of the Computer Engineer. After researching about the position and employment requirements, we have put together in our top-notch PrepPack™ test simulations faithfully modelled on the official tests offered to potential computer engineers. With our Numerical and Abstract Reasoning Tests, you will sharpen your analytical and numerical skills and will make clever decisions and complex calculations quicker and more accurately. Willing to facilitate your learning process, we have added to our tests step-by-step study guides with which you will track your progress while practicing. Our study guides will also help you locate your weak points and put an extra effort into learning more, especially in those areas where your knowledge is insufficient. Combined with our study guides and answer keys, our test simulations will prepare you for your recruitment process so thoroughly that you will get shortlisted for a face-to-face interview.

Knowing how important it is to pass an interview well, JobTestPrep has decided to extend its assistance also to interviews and included in its materials a helpful interview kit. When you practice with our interview resources, you will prepare clever answers to the most challenging interview questions and, equipped with these answers, will make the most favourable impression on recruiters. Purchase our practice materials, do well on your pre-hire examination and interviews, and become hired as a Computer Engineer in any company you want.

What Is the Computer Engineer?

Computer Engineers, or as they are also called software engineers, develop, test, and evaluate software. They also design new operating systems or various applications, or even computer games. Computer Engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, designing microprocessors, microcontrollers, personal computers, and circuit design. In many companies, Computer Engineers also construct and manage their computer systems and, if something goes wrong with them, supply technical support and mend them.

Anyone who is considering the profession of the Computer Engineer should understand that it is, in effect, a combination of electrical engineering and computer science. It is concerned both with the utilization and design of computers. This means that Computer Engineers match efficient digital devices and software and, in so doing, strive to meet scientific and technological requirements of the industry.

What Degree Does the Computer Engineer Have?

To be employed as a Computer Engineer, you should have either bachelor or masters university degree. Most commonly, people working in this occupation receive a degree in software engineering or computer science. Most universities offer these disciplines as a sub-discipline of electrical engineering. Some of them offer a dual degree in both electrical and computer engineering. During their studies towards the degree, university students take courses in science, mathematics, and humanities. They also develop good writing and communication skills on such courses as Technical Writing and Critical Thinking. The university degree in computer engineering may also include training in designing digital and microcomputer applications, digital signal and image processing, telecommunications, computer architecture, and electromagnetic compatibility. Other subjects that students take include but not limited to embedded system design, operating systems, and digital system design.

But it is important to emphasize that however many courses students take while studying for their degree, their knowledge is always insufficient, because the field of computer engineering is constantly growing. Even if applicants hold master’s degree in software engineering or computer science, they are advised to continue their education by taking additional university or online courses. They need always sharpen their skills and knowledge if they want to build a successful career in the field of computer engineering. Some employers will also require their employees to have a certificate of a Professional Engineer (PE). To advance in your career, you will also need to belong to the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) Computer Society.

What Skills Should the Computer Engineer Have?

To be an outstanding Computer Engineer and become employed in the company of your choice, you need to possess the following skills:

  • Mathematics – Computers are operated by data. Computer Engineers whose major responsibilities are to construct hardware and program software, therefore, should know mathematics well.
  • Software Engineering – The work Computer Engineers do is performed by software on their computers. They thus need to be good at coding, designing a program, testing software for bugs, and writing scripts.
  • Programming Languages – One of the duties Computer Engineers perform is programming low-level systems and hardware, which requires the knowledge of such languages as C++, C, Assembly, and Pearl, among others. Computer Engineers are also expected to know Java and Python.
  • Knowledge of Hardware – Computer Engineers should know how computers are built. The knowledge of the components of the computers are also a must.
  • Problem Solving – Writing programs is not an easy feat. While programmers are coding, they make mistakes. Programs are often riddled with small bugs, which prevent them from working. Computer Engineers should possess good problem-solving skills and troubleshooting abilities to identify errors in programs and make them work.
  • Communication – Computer Engineers never work alone. They are always a part of a team, liaising with co-workers across different departments. To do a good work in tandem with others, Computer Engineers should know how to explain their ideas to others clearly and politely.

How Much Do Computer Engineers Earn?

Computer Engineers’ salary depends on their education, working experience, and the company for which they work. Newly graduate Computer Engineers with a bachelor’s degree usually earns from US$45,000 to US$75,000. The salary of the Computer Engineer with a master’s degree and at least five years of experience ranges from US$77,000 to US$108,000. Engineers with master’s degree or doctorate and more than 15 years of experience on average make from US$102,00 to $155,000.

The profession of the Computer Engineer is respectful and financially rewarding. If you have made up your mind to work as a Computer Engineer, it will be unwise to come to your pre-employment assessment unprepared and, in so doing, jeopardise your chances of being hired. Do not gamble with your career. Practice with JobTestPrep’s high-quality resources and become hired as a Computer Engineer and start building comfortable future for yourself and your family.
