Computer Engineering & Information System Management

A computer engineer, also called a software engineer, is responsible for developing, testing and evaluating the software that make our computers work. They may help in the development of new computer games, business applications or even in the design of entirely new operating systems. A computer engineer may also be responsible for constructing and managing an organization's computer system and supplying technical support. A computer engineer typically works in an office or laboratory environment as part of a team and enjoys a traditional work schedule.

An information systems manager is responsible for the computer systems within a company. They:

  • oversee installation;
  • ensure back up systems operate effectively;
  • purchase hardware and software;
  • provide the ICT technology infrastructures for an organisation;
  • contribute to organisational policy regarding quality standards and strategic planning.

Information systems managers work in every size of organisation in the industry and the service sector, usually with a staff of technicians, programmers and database administrators reporting to them.
