I didn't study the course I wanted. What made me went for another was the difficulty of getting admission into Unilorin. I passed jamb twice beating the cu off mark for medicine but I wasn't admitted. My mates are already in 200 level and those that went to polytechich were about to go for their industrial training and I'm there crying to become a medical doctor. Though it's nice to fight for what you desire, I let go of medicine and focus on another path. I went for Computer Engineering

Why?

When I made up my mind to let go of medicine, I decided to go into tech because the world now revolve around it. Having little or no knowledge about computer at that time made me want to really know what the device is capable of apart from hearing what it does. I wanted to be a computer man. I wanted to work on a system and not on human. It was a total change of mind. Also, I hear people talk about the computer intelligence and some people believe it's more intelligent than man. All these were some of the reason I diverted my mind to study computer engineering. And besides, a few school offer the course then. I graduated in a class of 17 for you to know how scanty we were, so I see it as hot cake. (Anyone can learn it on the street now though) 😂. But still, going through the indeph would always make a difference because it's beyond computer repair. Also, you should know I wouldn't go for something that won't pay on the long run. We all go to school to learn what will fetch us money after graduating

So what is a computer?

A Computer is a course treated at every level in school nowadays. Please, that's not the defination of a computer. I'm only trying to explain that a kid in basic class knows what a computer is
.😂

Any electronic device that makes work easier is called a computer

"I didn't do computer in basic and high school. It wasn't in the school curriculum (truly) so permit me to give that basic definition. Lol"

When it comes to the design and the implementation of software and hardware components of any equipment controlled by the computer, computer engineering should come to mind. Computer engineering course has a lot to do with computer science, Mathematics and, electrical electronic engineering because they are all grounded in computing. Computer engineering has several branches like hardware engineering, software engineering, computer architecture that deals with robotic and processing, computer networking, computer cyber security ( augmented reality, artificial intellugence) and so on. Computer engineering course would equip the student to understand how the entire computer system works in other to work easily with different softwares and have the ability to build, repair, test and maintain any computer device. When you press a button on a computer device, countless of operations has occurred before you see the output. Understanding these concepts helps in the building processes

Usefulness of computer engineering

Did you know that without the help of computer engineers, we can't be communicating right now? Computer engineers used the theories and principles of computing, mathematics and science to develop computer hardware that we use in all our computer devices today. If I say computer engineers made it possible for the world's networking, I think I'm right. The computer chips that is the main power house of every mordern electronics you can think of is built by computer engineers. Every code written for a device to work is computed on a chip and networked on a board. The phone, computer system, cameras, intelligent devices and so on have chips that makes them work as designed. I think computer engineering course has helped in bringing the world together through the networking system and the advancement and future of technology is built around it

Thanks for reading.
This is ckole the laughing gas
One love

That makes sense, I should have studied it too, it's impossible for me to ask other people for help forever.

Well, most of us diverted. At first, I wasn't thinking of studying computer engineering but It came my way just luke that. I believe you are good at what you study too. Thanks my friend.

I love computer engineering as a course and I really envy those who studied the course because it takes a lot of concentration and determination to get acquainted with this

I always think that it's a very difficult course to study 😃

Nah! It's not difficult at all. But anyone that detest calculation will not do well in the course. I guess you don't like math..😂🤣

I m so happy for you ..
Medicine is really big for the weak.. but more so, your passion would have Ben exhausted in this Nigeria.
I m glad you jumped out

Jumping out was the best option at hand so I had to follow my heart. Computer engineering has been fun I swear. 😁.. One love bro.

I don't know what they teach in computer engineering in your country but from where I am, they are limited only in using readily available chips/technology (e.g. logic gates) in terms of hardware design. I have a lot of friends in the computer engineering field and they don't teach circuit design using discrete components.

The circuit design that can be used in the construction of chips or IC's are more on a the side of an Electronics Engineer. And the actual chip (or die as they call it in the semicon industry) is built by other engineers specializing in IC's - mainly Material Engineers.

Thanks man for this. Actually, computer engineers has a lot to do with elect elect. I did a lot of electronic courses along computer hardware and software courses.

Since some computer engineers can write software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, and various designs like circuit boards, VLSI chips, analog sensors, designing mixed signal and so on, I now generalized it which shouldn't be. I would say my use of word in that contest was too bold 😂

Most microchips are designed by companies and most of them are mainly into electrical electronics engineering stuff with some touches of computer engineering too. Thanks for this man.

I admire that you did not just focus on the subjects written in your specific course outline. It is the way it should be - let us learn things that may help us improve not just in our specific field but as a person in general. 🙂

I finished my Electronics Engineering and has also experience working under the Engineering department of Texas Instruments (Semicon Company). I am not directly practicing my profession now. Once I opened my mind outside the box of being a "purest", I don't feel the need or pressure of having to strictly be an Electronics Engineer. I am now just an ordinary person who has a knowledge and experience in the field. 😁
