Electrical engineers design, develop, test and supervise the manufacturing of electrical and electronic equipment. Some of this equipment includes power generating, controlling, and transmission devices used by electric utilities and electric motors, machinery controls, lighting and wiring in buildings, automobiles, aircraft, radar and navigation systems, and broadcast and communications systems. Computer engineers are involved with digital technologies such as computer hardware and the development of more efficient circuitry on silicon computer chips. They research, design, develop, and test computer hardware and supervise its manufacturing and installation. Computer software engineers often work as part of a team that designs new hardware, software and systems. As a computer engineering student at Northeastern you will study computer architecture, software engineering, computer-aided design (VLSI), microprocessor-based design, and applied algorithms.
