They may also design network that connects computer systems, and work on integrating software programs with computer hardware.

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

As you a BCom Students, you will not have mathemetics as subject in your Graduations. So you can not apply for above mentioned degrees as per requirements.

Howver, there are certain courses like "GNIIT from NIIT" which is a Computer Engineering Course specially designed for Commerce Students. You can even apply for "Hardware & Networking Courses" from the renowned institutes like Aptech.

Responsibilities or Required Technical Skills:
Since the computer engineering field is quite broad, the required technica skills listed in the job posting you may come across will vary, depending on whether the job is more hardware - software focused, and which industry the employer belongs too. typically, you will need to have followings:

3. Familiarity with Software test procedures or scripts.
4. Experience building your own pc system.
5. Understanding of diffrent operating systems.
6. Experience with device drivers.
7. Understanding of networking and security
8. Understanding of the (sometimes specialized) software that is typically used in particular industry.
9. Knowledge of programming langugaes such as C, C++, Java and other Object-Oriented languages.

Computer Engineers usually use computer-assisted software engineering, or CASE, tools to automate the process. They also test, debug and update programs.

Other Crucial Skills:
Since computer engineers work closely with programmers, designers, product devlopers and testers, they really need to have strong interpersonal and communication skills, as well as the ability to work in a team.
