Computer engineers draw upon mathematics, science and computer science to design computer - or microprocessor - controlled devices, systems and processes. Examples include many electronic consumer products such as cell phones, personal computers, DVD recorders/players and satellite radios. In addition, computer engineers are involved in the design of computer hardware - from large-scale memory arrays and parallel-processing mainframes to small-scale processors and high-speed data buses. A key target area of the York College education is in the area of embedded systems, which are customized, standalone systems under computer/microprocessor control to perform a specific function.
