Job perspectives for graduates of Computer Engineering

Graduates who are able to apply knowledge of computer science to the context of technological problems are in high demand. In the past few years, there were not even enough graduates to fulfil the demands of the economy. 

Tasks and fields of activity

Graduates of Computer Engineering create and develop software systems for technological applications, employ simulation methods for the design of hardware and are responsible for networks. Moreover, they program real time systems as well as robots for process and production automation and develop data bases.

Start of a career

Graduates of the bachelor's programme Computer Engineering usually find a job very easily. Frequently, they start in the company they have written their bachelor thesis with. In the past, the GKSS Science Center in Geesthacht, and Siemens Technologies have assigned topics, for instance. The graduates already know the working environment, the company is aware of his or her qualities as a high potential. This transition has advantages for both sides. If graduates of Computer Engineering opt for something completely new, they do not face any problems.
