BS Computer Engineering

BS Computer Engineering is a four-year undergraduate engineering program offered by multiple universities in Pakistan and across the globe. Now, there is widespread confusion about the difference between Computer Science and Computer Engineering. These two programs are usually considered one program and interchangeably used, but these two are pretty different branches of study. Computer Science is a balance of theory and learning about dealing with data and algorithms. In contrast, Computer Engineering is a domain of engineering that concentrates on developing hardware, robots, network systems, etc. In BS Computer Engineering, major subjects include computer hardware, computer graphics, network security.

The scope of Computer Engineering is very high in Pakistan, and it has been getting boom day by day. It is because computers are everywhere, and hence, computer engineers are always in demand. Computer Engineers can build their careers in a wide range of domains of computer and engineering such as artificial intelligence, ethical hacking, wireless network, computer manufacturing, database systems, web applications, animation, computer graphics, computational biology, video games development, mobile application development, data science, network administration, etc.  Moreover, Computer Engineers are highly recruited by industries where technology-based products are manufactured. Furthermore, computer engineers may launch their own industry or corporation to provide computer-related services. Even when studying, students can start their careers.  Many Pakistani students have started their own tech companies and engaged further employees to ensure teamwork. As a result, they are not only succeeding financially for themselves but also providing jobs for others.
