Sierra’s Answer

Hello-

I majored in Computer Engineering, which I find to be half way between electrical (hardware) engineering and software engineering. Software engineering focuses more on the programming components, whereas electrical engineering focuses on the circuitry and hardware involved. I enjoyed computer engineering because it was a good combination of the two.

Charles’s Answer

Traditionally general hardware engineers design circuits on printed circuit boards - software engineers design programs that run on the hardware. However, in today's world a lot of functionality is provided in programmable logic - FPGAs - which are traditionally designed by the "hardware engineer" - but are created using programming techniques. Software engineers typically work with abstract concepts of a system to create functionality - Hardware engineers typically work with physical devices and interconnects.

Satish’s Answer

The responsibility of hardware engineer is that all the hardware parts are perfectly assembled together and are working properly in order to support the software to run on that platform. Hardware facilitates software to execute properly.

Software engineers are the developers of different software and applications which are making our life much easy and fast.

Rebecca’s Answer

My 1st degree is on on software engineering. The studies focused on using different programming languages, algorithms and techniques. You cannot touch it physically. It runs and operates on the electronic devices.

Hardware Engineering is as described by Sierra earlier. it focuses on hardware and circuit. You can see and touch it physically.
