Well, that is kind of strange computer engineering degree. My degree is in computer science, which included 5 semesters of EE. That was about 20 years ago. These days, it seems like the computer science degree is really more a programming degree. On the other hand, if you expect to have a decent professional career (at least in the US), a college degree is mandatory, though just about any real degree is sufficient.
