"Despite a tremendous increase in career opportunities in computer engineering, students are still under-enrolling in that major in college," Mass said. "High school students and their parents have misperceptions about the job market. They have known or heard about middle managers in computer engineering losing jobs after 9/11, and they have avoided that major, thinking there are few jobs. But that is no longer true.
It usually takes a few years for people to realize that job growth in a field has gone from low to high, and this is the case with computing engineering."
Participating companies at the career fair include Schoor, DePalma Inc., Manalapan; ADP Corporation, Jersey City; Amerada Hess, Woodbridge; FBI, Newark; IBM Corporation, New Fairfield, Conn.; Schindler Elevator Corporation, Morristown; SSP Architectural Group, Somerville; Intel Communications, Parsippany; Telcordia Technologies, Inc., Piscataway; and Wyeth, Pearl River, N.Y.
