Logic: This is probably the most essential skill that you will require as a Computer Engineer, in fact for any Engineering for that matter. Logical understanding is must for them. Therefore most companies in their recruitment process have logical reasoning section in the written test.

Problem Solving Skills: As a computer engineer, your problem solving skills have to be excellent. It's your approach to a particular problem that describes the solution and the application that you will be developing. Working more on the basic problem solving techniques at initial stages helps Computer Engineers in the long run. Employers will always look for your problem solving skills during every stage of selection process - written or personal interview.

Maths and Programming: A computer engineer has to work on various programs. The semantics may vary but the concepts and the basic approach is usually the same. The fundamentals of Data Structures and basic programming languages are important. Similarly, the core concepts of maths have to be in your mind if you are going for Computer Engineering. The qualifying test for any recruitment exam will definitely test your programming skills.

People Skills: From job point of view it becomes very important that your interpersonal skills are of quality level. No matter what profile you are getting in to, working with your team members is something that defines your work in real sense. You have got to learn how to work in a team, how to share your work, how to manage people from different backgrounds.

Communication Skills: Due to globalization it has become absolutely necessary to have excellent communication skills. Most companies these days work in globalized markets and therefore expect their employees to interact with the world in a most effective and professional manner.

They may also design networks 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.

Reponsibilities or Required Technical Skills:
Since the Computer Engineering field is quite broad, the required technicals 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 employer belongs to. Typically, you will need to have following:

1. An understanding of the particular computer hardware architecture you will be working with
2. Experience designing, coding and testing softwares.
3. Familiarity with Software Test Procedures or Sripts
4. Experience building your own PC system
5. Understnading 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 particular industry.
9. Knowledge of programming languages such as C, C++, Java and other Object-Riented programming languages.

Computer engineers usually use Computer Assisted Software Engineering, or CASE, tools to automate the process. They also test, debug and update the 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.

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

Here are some interesting "Niche" areas of Computer Engineering:
1. working with Radar and Communications Technology
2. Supporting high performance and embedded computing systems for nuclear medicines.
3. Military Software Support
4. Designing new Motors and Sensors for Robotics Equipments.
