Computer Engineer

Job Overview

Computer engineers are those behind the sophisticated gadgetry and hardware embedded throughout operations in the energy industry. Whether it’s a wellhead tool that receives temperature data and sends it up to the drill rig for geologists to review, a tool receiving vibration data from geophones sent to seismic experts for analysis, or the controller box attached to the pump jack, you are behind an unending number of processes, hardware and software that makes the industry tick.

Computer engineers research, plan, design, develop, modify, evaluate and integrate computer and information and communication system networks, such as mainframe systems, local and wide area networks, fiber-optic networks, wireless communication networks and other data communications systems. In the energy industry, they may develop complex production and processing systems, surface wellhead systems, high pressure fluid control equipment and marine loading systems.

Computer engineers interact with technicians, designers and end users through training and project implementation and maintenance phases.
