The opportunities for computer engineers are increasing rapidly both in India and abroad because of the booming in this industry. From job prospects, the Computer Engineers have been in demand in the recent few years. Government organizations like DRDL, ISRO, ECIL and BEL offer jobs to computer science students. There are thousands of multinational and national software companies offer jobs to computer engineers. To name few famous, Microsoft, Google, Yahoo, Amazon, IBM, Facebook, Oracle, Cisco, Infosys, TCS, and Wipro. Worldwide employment of computer software engineers is projected to generate massive number of jobs in the next five years.

Computer Engineering is really an excellent field to have opportunities both in software companies and higher studies. As computing is extensively applied to almost every walk of life it created massive jobs for Computer Engineering students. On the same time more demand and application kept it research funding alive attracting many students to opt for higher studies.

In addition, information security concerns have given rise to new software needs. Concerns over "cyber security" should result in businesses and government continuing to invest heavily in software that protects their networks and vital electronic infrastructure from attack. The expansion of this technology in the next 10 years will lead to an increased need for computer engineers to design and develop the software and systems to run these new applications and integrate them into older systems.

To sum up, you won't see saturation in Computer Engineering. But given the large number of Computer Engineers graduating every year, the quality of education and the institute will matter from employers' point of view.
