Computer engineering also overlaps the areas of computer information systems, computer science, and information science. It is common for students majoring in computer engineering to also minor in computer science. Typical career paths: The study of engineering fosters the development of quantitative, analytical, and problem-solving skills which are very useful in many different career areas. On average, 70% to 80% of graduates with a Bachelor of Electrical Engineering degree choose employment in private industry; federal, state, and local government agencies; and in private practice. Approximately 15% to 20% of the electrical engineering graduates will choose to continue their education toward a master’s degree or Ph.D., and a few graduates will choose to attend law, medical, or business schools.
