As a computer engineer you need to be able to analyze information to determine software and hardware needs, design or update software using scientific analysis, and mathematical equations. Working conditions are very bearable because work is always indoors but you do have to sit for land periods of time. Hours are up to 40 hours per week but I would have to work weekends to meet deadlines or solve a problem for a client. The reason I chose this career is because technology is increasing every day, and there is more of a demand for computer engineers.
