1.Justify your buzzwords: Many students tend to write a whole list of programming languages and skills. But if those skills have not been used in any project and are not proven anywhere else in your resume, they won't have much significance.

2.Highlight important courses: Highlight those courses which are relevant to the employer you are applying for. Applying to Google? Include Distributed Systems and Machine Learning. Applying to Pixar? List Computer Graphics and Physically-Based Animation.

3.Mention academic achievements: Sometimes we tend to underestimate the small achievements that we made during our school and college. These things tell a lot about how you have grown as an individual and a professional.

4.Be specific: Provide the relevant details but don't give abstract information. You have to be very specific about your projects. Take two instances:

"Implemented a distributed storage system"


"Implemented a Linux-based distributed filesystem in C (~20K lines) tested with 20K concurrent users"?
The latter provides clear details of what you have done whereas the former is more generalized and makes lesser impact. Keep your resume short but in a way that it includes all the necessary information.

5.Mark references: It's very important to mention the references which will build more credibility to your profile. Similarly you can also mention about your favorite books that will give a brief idea of your learning and knowledge to the reader.

Greeting's for the day!!!

Computer Engineers are responsible for designing, developing, implementing and testing Computer-based hardware and software. including the components that are found inside computer equipment, as well as actual devices that contain the computers and the software that runs on those machines. 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.

Responsibilities or Required Technical Skills / Skills to be reflected in Resume:
Since the Computer Engineering field is quite broad, the required technical skills listed in the job postings you may come across will vary, depending on whether the job is more hardware or Software focused, and which industry the employerbelongs to. Typically, you will need to have followings:

1. An understanding of the particular computer hardware rachitecture you will be working with.
2. Experience designing, coding and testing softwares.
3. Familarity with Software Test Procedure or Scripts.
4. Experience building your own PC System.
5. Understanding of different Operating Systems, including Windows and Linux. and how certain types of Software will work with them.
6. Experience with Device Drivers.
7. Understanding of Networking and Security
8. Understanding of the (sometimes specialized) software that is typically used in a particular industry
9. Knowledge of programming languages such as C, C++, Java and Other Object-Orinted 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 developers and testers, they really need to have strong Interpersonal and Communications Skills, as well as ability to work in a team.

Fields employing Computer Engineers:
Computer Engineers are likely to find work in a variety of fields, including (but not limited to):
1. Telecommuications
2. Manufacturing
3. Transportation
4. Product Development

Here are some interesting "Niche" areas of Computer Engineering:
1. Working with Radar and Communications Tecnology
2. Supporting High Performance and embedded aomputing systems for nuclear medicines
3. Military Software Support
4. Designing new Motors and Sensors for Robotics Equipments.
