A branch off of the electrical engineering discipline, concentrating primarily on the design of complete systems for the processing of information. In particular, concentrates a lot on digital systems, electronics, programmable devices, and software for embedded systems (At least as I have experienced it.)

Personally, I think that computer engineering degrees are confused with computer science way too often--CE seems to focus on hardware, usually with large doses of software thrown in, whereas CS focuses much more heavily on software and algorithms.
