About Jobs in Computers & Engineering and Workers with Vision Loss
Both engineering and computing are the processes of inventing, designing, building, and systematizing. If you look around you will see that much of the world and the way we experience it is the result of one or more engineering and/ or computing processes. Roads, dams, bridges, cars, artificial limbs, sensors, spacecraft, buildings, tunnels, paint, kitchen appliances, computers, software, apps, automated devices, information technology, and information storage or processing sysems at work —nearly every human-made substance or object on Earth at one point or another had an engineer, computer systems engineer, or programmer involved in its design, creation, manufacture, or distribution. An education in this field is based on a strong foundation in math and science, and different courses emphasize how to apply this knowledge to the many different fields of engineering.
