What’s New – Computer Engineer

Computer hardware engineers research, design, develop and test computer systems and components such as processors, circuit boards, memory devices, networks and routers. These engineers discover new directions in computer hardware, which generate rapid advances in computer technology. Employment of computer hardware engineers is projected to grow 3 percent from 2014 to 2024, slower than the average for all occupations. A limited number of engineers will be needed to meet the demand for new computer hardware because more technological innovation takes place with software than with hardware.
