THE PROBLEM AND ITS BACKGROUND
Some of the entering college students have the misconception that Computer Engineering and Electronics and Communication Engineering are only the same. But these are definitely different. This research will specify the differences between COE and ECE. It will give information in choosing their career and it will also use as a guide for incoming freshmen.
Basically Electronics and Communication Engineering, deals in the study of communication and signals. It is a combination of electronics and communication. Communication like what we have nowadays; radio waves, spectrum, etc. It requires also a study in electronics, which deals with circuits. It deals more with hardware like integrated circuits. Logically it is also interlinked with computers.
Computer Engineering is about the whole understanding of the concepts of computer. Such as operating system, programming, database, networks, software, hardware, etc. as this concept are essential for who will take this course.
Based on the definition of the two mentioned course, the differences between can be seen. It only means that they are not the same because they differ on field of study. In terms of job they can get, of course they also differ. As this research continues, it will cite more differences of ECE and COE. This research will help the incoming freshmen to their toughest decision in choosing in their career.
Statement of the Problems/Objectives
What is the distinction between the courses of Computer Engineering and the Electronics and Communication Engineering?
• Why is that most of the students considered that the Computer Engineering course is under the Electronics and Communications Engineering?
• Why is Computer Engineering course does not have its own board examination?
• What are the differences of their fields, duties and specialization?
• Is it true...
