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

If you take computer science engineering after completion you will be called computer engineers.If you take branch software engineering then software engineers.so there are other difference like
the one who is job in software engineering then he is called software engineer.The one who is just completed CSE they are called computer engineers.
There are many universities which provide you excellent communication skills,Good placement opportunities
those are
1) BITS, Pilani
