Dear Aspirant,

Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), and hardware-software integration.

Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.

Software engineering is the study and an application of engineering to the design, development, and maintenance of software.

Typical formal definitions of software engineering are:
"the application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software";
"an engineering discipline that is concerned with all aspects of software production";
and "the establishment and use of sound engineering principles in order to economically obtain software that is reliable and works efficiently on real machines

Best wishes,

Dr. Anand Wadadekar
