Computer engineers can now earn up to $30,000 a year and work at companies that employ thousands of them, but the skills that they’re using to do so are not yet widely accepted by employers, according to a new report.
That’s a big challenge for the job market, and it highlights the challenge of bridging a skill gap with more mainstream jobs, according the report, which was produced by the Pew Research Center and the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
There are also big gaps in education that are holding back the growth of these fields, according a recent report from the National Association of Independent Colleges and Employers.
While there is a growing demand for computer science graduates, many are not taking the plunge into computer engineering, the report said.
Computer engineering is an engineering discipline, but it has historically been viewed as a more tech-centric field than computer science, said Jason Schoel, an associate professor of business administration at the University at Buffalo and co-author of the report.
The profession is still relatively new in the U.S., with its roots dating back to the early 1900s.
Computer science is an advanced math and science discipline that has been popular for more than a century, but computer engineers have struggled to become well-rounded in areas such as business and law.
They are not expected to become more diverse in the workforce as computer technology advances, Schoal said.
“A lot of people are going to be doing computer science because they’re good at math and they want to get into a tech-oriented field,” he said.
A recent study found that computer science has been a key part of employers’ recruiting strategies in recent years.
While the percentage of computer science majors who are in tech companies has risen dramatically over the past few decades, the percentage is still much lower than the percentage in law and engineering.
In 2011, about 30 percent of all computer science jobs were in technology-related fields, the study found.
The study also found that while computer science was the most-applied degree in the field, only 20 percent of those jobs went to women.
The report found that many of these skills were not used in the past, with the vast majority of computer engineering graduates in recent decades relying on math and computer science in order to advance in the industry.
A 2013 study by the Association for Computing Machinery found that only 21 percent of computer scientists had earned a bachelor’s degree, compared to 53 percent of engineering graduates.
The percentage of software engineers has also increased, with a record number of engineering majors earning a master’s degree or Ph.
D. in the last five years, the Association reported in 2012.
The industry has also been hit by a series of technology disruptions, which have made the job of computer engineers more competitive than they were a few years ago, said Andrew Stuever, executive director of the Institute for Continuing Education in Information Systems and Technology, or IDTech, which is a nonprofit that provides training for the computer engineering workforce.
Computer engineers are getting the most advanced training and they’re the ones who are going through it, he said, adding that they have also benefited from the industry’s rise in the number of cloud computing services, which provide faster access to information for businesses.
“You can go into a computer lab, and they will show you an app or an app that will show what the user is looking at,” Stuevert said.
While computers and their associated skills are expected to continue to grow in the coming years, they are also becoming more specialized, as computer-based jobs have shifted away from software engineering, said Christopher Koeppen, an assistant professor of information technology and computer sciences at the Indiana University Bloomington and coauthor of a study on computer science education.
The problem is that there’s not a great deal of demand for those jobs, so the demand for people who can do that work is very low.
For example, the technology that makes video calling a viable business model is not something you can easily find in any field other than software engineering.
And even if you had to make video calls, the cost of that was very low, so that’s the challenge,” Koeppel said.
This is not to say that computer engineering is not attractive in its own right.
For many students, computer engineering will be the major they complete their education on.
But for the most part, computer science is not a highly competitive career path, said Eric C. Tannenbaum, a professor of computer and information sciences at Stanford University.
The main reason that computer engineers can earn such high salaries is because of the high demand for their skills, Tannensbaum said.
For some, they simply have to be smart, as they can quickly become frustrated when they cannot keep up with the rapidly changing demands of the industry, he added.
Computer engineer salaries are growing, but are not going to stay high for long because of
