Computer engineering

Computer engineering is a branch of engineering that integrates several fields of computer science and electronic engineering required to develop computer hardware and software. Computer engineers have training in electronic engineering, software design, hardware-software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, personal computers, supercomputers, to circuit design; this field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work but how they integrate into the larger picture. Usual tasks involving computer engineers include writing software and firmware for embedded microcontrollers, designing VLSI chips, designing analog sensors, designing mixed signal circuit boards, designing operating systems. Computer engineers are suited for robotics research, which relies on using digital systems to control and monitor electrical systems like motors and sensors.

In many institutions of higher learning, computer engineering students are allowed to choose areas of in-depth study in their junior and senior year because the full breadth of knowledge used in the design and application of computers is beyond the scope of an undergraduate degree. Other institutions may require engineering students to complete one or two years of general engineering before declaring computer engineering as their primary focus. Computer engineering began in 1939 when John Vincent Atanasoff and Clifford Berry began developing the world's first electronic digital computer through physics and electrical engineering. John Vincent Atanasoff was once a physics and mathematics teacher for Iowa State University and Clifford Berry a former graduate under electrical engineering and physics. Together, they created the Atanasoff-Berry computer known as the ABC which took 5 years to complete. While the original ABC was dismantled and discarded in the 1940s a tribute was made to the late inventors, a replica of the ABC was made in 1997 where it took a team of researchers and engineers four years and $350,000 to build.

The modern personal computer emerged in the 1970s, after several breakthroughs in semiconductor technology. These include the first working transistor by William Shockley, John Bardeen and Walter Brattain at Bell Labs in 1947, the silicon surface passivation process by Mohamed Atalla at Bell Labs in 1957, the monolithic integrated circuit chip by Robert Noyce at Fairchild Semiconductor in 1959, the metal-oxide-semiconductor field-effect transistor by Mohamed Atalla and Dawon Kahng at Bell Labs in 1959, the single-chip microprocessor by Federico Faggin, Marcian Hoff, Masatoshi Shima and Stanley Mazor at Intel in 1971; the first computer engineering degree program in the United States was established in 1971 at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland, Ohio. As of 2015, there were 250 ABET-accredited computer engineering programs in the U. S. In Europe, accreditation of computer engineering schools is done by a variety of agencies part of the EQANIE network. Due to increasing job requirements for engineers who can concurrently design hardware, software and manage all forms of computer systems used in industry, some tertiary institutions around the world offer a bachelor's degree called computer engineering.

Both computer engineering and electronic engineering programs include analog and digital circuit design in their curriculum. As with most engineering disciplines, having a sound knowledge of mathematics and science is necessary for computer engineers. Computer engineering is referred to as computer engineering at some universities. Most entry-level computer engineering jobs require at least a bachelor's degree in computer engineering. One must learn an array of mathematics such as calculus and trigonometry and some computer science classes. Sometimes a degree in electronic engineering is accepted, due to the similarity of the two fields; because hardware engineers work with computer software systems, a strong background in computer programming is necessary. According to BLS, "a computer engineering major is similar to electrical engineering but with some computer science courses added to the curriculum"; some large firms or specialized jobs require a master's degree. It is important for computer engineers to keep up with rapid advances in technology.

Therefore, many continue learning throughout their careers. This can be helpful when it comes to learning new skills or improving existing ones. For example, as the relative cost of fixing a bug increases the further along it is in the software development cycle, there can be greater cost savings attributed to developing and testing for quality code as soon as possible in the process, before release. There are two major specialties in computer engineering: software. According to the BLS, Job Outlook employment for computer hardware engineers, the expected ten-year growth from 2014 to 2024 for computer hardware engineering was an estimated 3% and there was a total of 77,700 jobs that same year." And is down from 7% for the 2012 to 2022 BLS estimate and is further down from 9% in the BLS 2010 to 2020 estimate." Today, computer hardware is somehow equal to electronic and computer engineering and has been divided into many subcategories. According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, "computer applications software engineer

Paris visite

The Paris Visite is a discount travel card aimed at tourists visiting Paris for a few days. The pass can be bought for 1, 2, 3 or 5 consecutive days for public transport zones 1-3 or 1-5, it allows free travel in on the Paris Métro, the RER, the RATP and the Optile, the Montmartre funicular. Zones 1 to 3 will cover most tourists. For more out-of-town destinations, a ticket covering the banlieue may be better value; these tickets cover travel on the Roissybus and the Orlyval to and from the two main Paris airports, Paris Orly and Charles de Gaulle Airport. The local transport authority has systematically reduced the number of fare zones, from mid-July 2011 the STIF combined that with Zone 5

Hunter Harvey

Hunter Luke Harvey is an American professional baseball pitcher for the Baltimore Orioles of Major League Baseball. Harvey attended Bandys High School in North Carolina; the Baltimore Orioles selected him in the first round of the 2013 Major League Baseball draft. He signed with the Orioles on June 20, 2013, made his professional debut that season for the Gulf Coast Orioles of the Rookie-level Gulf Coast League. In August he was promoted to the Aberdeen IronBirds of the Class A-Short Season New York-Penn League. Overall, he started eight games, pitching to a 0–1 win–loss record with a 1.78 earned run average with 33 strikeouts in ​25 1⁄3 innings pitched. Prior to the 2014 season, Harvey was ranked by Baseball Prospectus as the 58th-best prospect in baseball, he spent the season with the Delmarva Shorebirds of the Class A South Atlantic League where he pitched to a 7-5 record and 3.18 ERA in 17 starts. On May 12, 2015, Harvey was shut down for six weeks due to tightness in his elbow, he did not pitch for a minor league team in 2015.

Harvey threw in an instructional league in September 2015. He began the 2016 season on the disabled list and underwent Tommy John surgery in July which ended his season. In 2017, Harvey pitched for Aberdeen and Delmarva, along with three rehab games with the Gulf Coast Orioles, pitching to an 0-1 record and 0.96 ERA with 30 strikeouts in ​18 2⁄3 total innings pitched between the three teams. The Orioles added Harvey to their 40-man roster after the 2017 season, they assigned him to the Bowie Baysox of the Class AA Eastern League to begin the 2018 season, but promoted him to the major leagues on April 9, to provide a fresh player for the relief corps. However, he did not make his major league debut and was optioned back to Bowie two days and spent the remainder of the year there. In nine starts, he compiled a 1-2 record with a 5.57 ERA. On August 17, 2019, Harvey was promoted to the major leagues, he made his major league debut that night versus the Boston Red Sox, striking out two batters over one scoreless inning.

He was credited with his first major-league win in a 4–1 victory over the Kansas City Royals in his Camden Yards debut three nights on August 20. After he kept the game tied at 1–1 by retiring all three batters he faced in his only inning of work, Hanser Alberto's three run homer in the bottom of the eighth gave the Orioles its eventual winning margin. Harvey is the son of former Major League Baseball pitcher Bryan Harvey, his brother Kris Harvey, played in Minor League Baseball from 2005 to 2012.
