salary.com is a pretty good source for questions around compensation. It's a little tough on that site, as the job descriptions are very specific. They won't have a general "computer engineer", but these were some close ones I pulled up.
Salary can also depend on geography, schooling, degree type, skill level, and company type. For example, a startup company in Chicago wil make less than Google or a more established company in San Francisco.
Also, you can be trained as a developer, and end up drawing up requirements, and designing features around new products. This would be more of a product/project manager position. At Google/Microsoft this will probably be around $90-110K / year, out of college. However, these jobs are very competitive.
For a developer around 60-75K would be reasonable for out of college.
