Computer engineering students learn to use digital and computing technologies to solve problems in industrial systems, and in areas such as information processing, data transfer, communications, commerce and travel. Their degree combines creativity with technology, to teach them the skills to develop both hardware and software for electronic and microprocessor-based systems. Unlike computer scientists, computer engineers are less interested in the programming and coding and more on the big picture from design and development to ongoing troubleshooting and maintenance.

Data is increasingly cheap and ubiquitous. We are now digitising analogue content and collecting new types of data from web logs, mobile devices, sensors, instruments, and transactions. We can now also identify patterns and regularities in data of all sorts which has the potential to deepen our understanding of phenomena ranging from physical and biological systems to human social and economic behaviour. A degree in data science focuses on the study of collecting and analysing this data to make changes and advancements in almost any industry.
