About Us

“Everybody in this country should learn how to program a computer, because it teaches you how to think” ~Steve Jobs Rather than just using computers, computer engineers work with hardware and software. Computer engineers focus on innovation—making computing systems safer, faster and more powerful. Computer engineers apply scientific theory to develop and design new computer hardware or software. At the career level, there are two main branches: hardware and software engineering. Hardware engineers focus their skills on computer systems and components, designing microprocessors, circuit boards, routers and other embedded devices. On the software side, these engineers create, test and debug programs and applications that run on computers, mobile devices and more.

Role Models

  • Padmasree Warrior

    Padmasree Warrior is Chief Executive Officer of NIO U.S as well as a member of its board of directors. In these capacities, she is responsible for the brains of NIO's autonomous, electric vehicles and the overall user experience. She is based in San Jose, CA where NIO U.S. is headquartered. Warrior joined Motorola in 1984. Over the course of her 23 years at the company she served as Corporate Vice-President and general manager of Motorola's Energy Systems Group, and Corporate Vice-President and Chief Technology Officer in its Semiconductor Products Sector. Immediately prior to becoming Motorola's CTO, she served as general manager of Thoughtbeam, a product of Motorola, in Tempe, Arizona. When named Motorola's CTO in January 2003, Warrior became a senior vice-president and in 2005 she was promoted to executive vice-president. During Warrior's tenure as CTO, Motorola was awarded the 2004 National Medal of Technology by the President of the United States, the first time the company had received this honour. During this period she was a proponent of "Seamless Mobility" – the concept of having seamless communication across all facets of a person's life. The dream was not fully realised and the concept was eventually dropped from Motorola marketing presentations. On 4 December 2007, she left Motorola to become CTO at Cisco Systems. It was announced in June 2015 that she will be leaving Cisco Systems.
