Computer hardware engineering is a discipline that combines aspects of both electrical engineering and computer science.Computer hardware includes computer chips, circuit boards, systems, modems, keyboards, and printers. Computer hardware engineers: research, design, develops, test, and oversee the installation of computer hardware. They are much like electronics engineers, but work only with computers. The rapid advances in computers are a result of their work. To keep up, these workers must stay up to date on what they know.
Students in a program focusing on computer hardware engineering learn to design, create and test computer hardware equipment, as well as research and develop new technologies. Students usually first study fundamental computer and electrical engineering topics, including systems, circuitry and the tools used in the field.As a Hardware Engineer, you design and build the systems that are the heart of one of the world’s largest and most powerful computing infrastructures. You develop from the lowest levels of circuit design to large system design and see those systems all the way through to high volume manufacturing. Your work has the potential to shape the machinery.
