Career Opportunities for Majors in Engineering - Electrical & Computer


Introduction

Engineering is a profession in which knowledge of the mathematical and natural sciences is applied to develop ways to use the materials and forces of nature economically for the benefit of humanity. At Rutgers, four-year undergraduate curricula leading to the degree of Bachelor of Science are offered in the fields of applied sciences, bioenvironmental, biomedical, chemical, civil, electrical and computer, industrial, and mechanical engineering, and materials science & engineering. Numerous areas of concentration are available within these disciplines, such as aerospace, biochemical, environmental, and packaging engineering.

Electrical and computer engineering is a diverse field ranging from microelectronics and integrated circuits to information and communication systems and computer engineering. Over the past two decades, increasing numbers of electrical and computer engineering graduates have been engaged in the development and application of semiconductor devices, higher capacity and more diversified computers, and data processing systems, including a mass transmittal of information, better known as the "information superhighway." Graduates also pursue careers in computer hardware and software engineering.
