I am studying computer engineering and I really like computer architecture and digital design, whereas at the same time I also enjoy algorithms and programming so much (I know software engineering is much more than that). I am taking more credits in both software and hardware, but would that help if I want to have a job in both areas? I don't know if this is the right community to ask so sorry if this is the wrong place :)
The skills you're trying to obtain are highly sought after in the Embedded and Wearable device fields.
My undergraduate degree is in Computer Science, but I'm old enough to have learned about computers when a firm grasp on electronics was required. Today I work on industrial control systems doing embedded Linux development. A fair part of my work requires that I'm able to read schematic diagrams and implement software based on the physical hardware.
It's not as glamorous as web development or "apps", but this is the kind of software which makes the real world work.

Of course it would, if nothing else it will give you actual knowledge in the fields.
I'd recommend taking a look at Mechatronics Engineering. It's a multidisciplinary Engineering field that combines Computer, Control, Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and is highly sought after as far as multidisciplinary Engineering goes. Especially in Digital Engineering fields, there are numerous fields you can get into.
These Engineers work with CPUs, microcontrollers, FPGAs, ASICs and SoC devices and usually end up in Aerospace/Defence, Oil, banking/finance and CPU/general-ASIC design industries. Its a massive sector that many people overlook.
I'm more than slightly biased, because I'm a senior FPGA engineer specialising in SystemVerilog but in my opinion it is one of the best career choices for an Engineer and gives you numerous options to specialise post-degree.
