Creativity is a process that evolves through gradual actions over the period of time. It has a great importance in the field of Computer Engineering as everyone around the world gets benefited from the creativity that Computer Engineers bring in to others' lives.

New ideas are often tentative, half-baked, and difficult to communicate in a persuasive way. On the receiving side, most scientists and engineers generally react to someone else's new idea by discouraging it: "It won't work.", "It's a waste of your time.", etc. Colleagues tend to reject unorthodox views, at least until those views are convincingly presented, in a complete form. But such a completed form occurs at the end of a research project, not at the beginning or middle. So, as a defensive measure, it is best to keep new ideas to one's self, until one reaches an unresolvable problem that requires someone else's assistance.

But as we observe carefully, the importance of new innovations is huge, They are the ones that aspire to bring the change. In a vast field such as Computer Science, you are proned to be unsuccessful if you are not creative. Think about big companies - Apple, Google. They have kept the creativity alive. and this is what keeping them at the top. Creativity is an essential in technology and has to be preserved.

Greeting's for the day!!!

Computer engineers are responsible for designing, developing, implementing and testing computer based hardware and software, including the componenets that are found inside the computer equipments, as well as actual devices that contain the computers and the software that runs on those machines. They may also design network that connects computer systems, and work on integrating software programs with computer hardware.

Educational Requirements:
To become computer engineer, you will typically require a bachelor of science degree in computer engineering, computer science or electrical engineering.

Required Technical Skills or Responsibilities:
Since the compyter engineering field is quie broad, the technical skills listed in the job posting you may come across will vary. depending on whether the job is more hardwareof software focused, and which industry the employer belongs to. Typically along with Creativity you will required to have the followings:

1. An understanding of the particular computer hardware architecture you will be working with
2. Experience designing, coding and testing software
3. Familiarity with Software Test Procedures and Scripts
4. Experience building your own PC system
5. Understanding of the different operating systems, including Windows and Linux and how certain types of software will work with them.
6. Experiencewith Device Drivers
7. Understanding of the Networking and Security
8. Understanding of the (Sometimes Specialzed) software that is typically used in the particular industry.
9. Knowledge of programming languages such as C, C++, Java and other Object-Oriented programming languages.

Computer engineers usually use computer-assisted software engineering, or CASE, tools to automate process. They also test, debug and update the programs so the Creatovity will be the important factor while desinging of the programs.

Other Crucial Skills:
Since computer engineers work closely with programers, designers, product devlopers, and testers, they really need to have strong Interpersonal and Communication Skills along with Creativity, as well as ability to work ina team.

Fields employing Computer Engineers:
Computer Engineers are likely to find work in a variety of fields, including (But not limited to):
1. Telecommunications
2. Manufactuing
3. Transportation
4. Product Development.

Here are some interesting "Niche" areas of Computer engineering:
1. Working with Radar and Communications Technology
2. Supporting high Performance and embedded computing systems foe nuclear medicines
3. Military Software Support
4. Designing new motors and sensors for robotics equipments.
