I'm no expert in Computer engineering in general but certainly linear algebra is used intensively in computer graphics.

Solving systems of linear equations (which may appear in (say) multiloop circuits) uses linear algebra.

Graph theory and networks (which may arise in discussions of parallel computing) use incidence and adjacency matrices, which are studied with linear algebra.

FFT and other signal processing methods use linear algebra.
