John’s Answer

Maihan the rapid improvements seen in computer technology are largely due to the work of computer hardware engineers. The responsibilities of a computer hardware engineer may include designing and testing new keyboards, computer chips or printers or overseeing the manufacturing of these types of items.

COMPUTER HARDWARE ENGINEER CAREER DEFINITION
Most computer hardware engineers work in labs. However, some work in manufacturing plants to ensure top-quality production. They study computer or electrical engineering and have extensive knowledge of the physical components of computers, like circuit boards, processors, chips, and electronic equipment. They display excellent problem-solving and troubleshooting skills. Computer hardware engineers tend to work for computer systems design companies. Students in a program focusing on computer hardware engineering learn to design, create and test computer hardware equipment, as well as researching and developing new technologies. Computer programming languages, digital logic, networking and computer operating systems are normally also studied.

EDUCATIONAL REQUIREMENTS
Starting a career as a computer hardware engineer generally requires a 4-year undergraduate degree in computer or electrical engineering, with hands-on experience in laboratory clinics as well as classroom-based seminars. Electrical engineering majors may offer concentrations in hardware engineering, while a computer engineering bachelor's degree program allows an aspiring computer hardware engineer to study both hardware and software applications, and how the two interact. Computer hardware classes include the study of circuit boards and their components, electro-magnetics, digital design, micro-systems design, embedded systems and computer networks. Those who wish to advance can earn a master's degree, while those wishing to perform research may earn a doctoral degree in computer engineering. This career is particularly geared toward those with strong analytical, critical thinking, and problem solving skills.

SKILLS REQUIRED
Those with successful careers in computer hardware engineering are usually creative, analytically-minded and detail-oriented people who enjoy being part of a team. Because computer hardware engineers must relate with people from a variety of fields, good interpersonal skills are also important.

CAREER OUTLOOK & SALARY
The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects jobs for computer hardware engineers to grow at an average rate of 5% from 2018-2028 when compared to other occupations, partly due to the fact that more growth is seen within the software rather than hardware sector. The average COMPUTER Hardware Engineer salary in the United States is $92,500 as of July 27, 2020, but the range typically falls between $81,900 and $101,900. Salary ranges can vary widely depending on many important factors, including education, certifications, additional skills, the number of years you have spent in your profession.
