Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of electrical engineering and computer science required to develop computer hardware and software. It’s all the rage with the industry today. For students and hobbyists, we picked out some computer engineering projects from all over the internet. These are simple and interesting hardware and software development projects while providing a solution that could come in handy in real life scenarios and can be easily used in the Final year Project.
Computer Engineering Projects: Teaching a Computer to Recognise Cats
This tutorial will provide a high-level introduction to the field of machine learning. To get a sense of how machine learning work, we begin our tutorial with a simple example of how a computer can recognize cats from other animals. Along with this, we provide a python code from implementing the same.

Facial expression recognition
Facial Expression Recognition (FER) project is developed in C#, Microsoft visual studio .net. Robust recognition of facial expressions from images and videos is still a challenging task due to the difficulty in accurately extracting the useful emotional features. These features are often represented in different forms, like static, dynamic, point-based geometric or region-based appearance.

This is one of the interesting projects among computer engineering Projects. This project is developed for hiding information in any image file.
In this, the user will have to run the application and will have two options, encrypt and decrypt. If a user selects encrypt, the application selects an image file, information file and option to save the image file. If the user selects decrypt, the application gives the screen to select only the image file and asks for the path where the user wants to save the secret file.

Secured mail system
To provide security to the organisational data, an organisation itself develops its own mailing system and the entire database resides at the organisation head. The employees of that particular organisation must communicate and with the admin through this mailing system only.
As the database resides at the organisational head, he/she can check the database and the activities performed by the employees and whenever an employee leaves the organisation, the organisation admin can know the information and the transactions done by him.
