You will have a number of career options available to you after completing your Computer Engineering if you do not want to work on core technologies:

1. You can become a lecturer/professor in Computer Engineering if you are interested in this profession. It will require a Masters degree if you want to work for good institutions.

2. There are a number of companies which hire Computer Enginers for non tech positions. You can join any consulting or finance or analytics firm. There are so many options. The roles are suitable for people who want to go in to the business world and are keen to do MBA at some point in their lives.



3. You can look for an MBA and then go for a job. It will help you to add more skills to your profile and then get a suitable role. It is advisable if you do your MBA from a top notch B School.

4. You can look for your interests and then start with that particular role in a small company. In large companies there is not much flexibility in terms of educational qualifications but in smaller ones, you can work it out.
