What course or degree do I need to become a computer engineer?

To become a computer engineer, you can choose two paths. You could either graduate with at least a bachelor’s degree in computer engineering from an accredited college or university. This is the preferred option by most computer engineer employers. The other option is by getting a degree in electrical engineering, which some employers might accept instead of a computer engineering qualification. However, students who go for the second option will have to take certain courses in computer engineering.
