Computer Science Engineering is a division of engineering which involves the principles and techniques of both computer science and electronics engineering. It includes testing and designing of computer components. It is also known as electronics & computer engineering or computer systems engineering. Proficients who work with computer hardware and software are known as computer engineers. There are 2 types of computer engineers. An individual who studies the computer programs are known as a computer software engineers. A candidate who studies the computer equipments are known as a computer hardware engineers. Computer engineers apply their knowledge of mathematics and science for the design and development of computers.
