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.
