Computer hardware engineers are responsible for the hardware configuration of computer systems. They update systems by improving the components, layout and design for increased efficiency. They also design the most compact and cost-effective model possible.
Specifically, these professionals analyze existing systems to identify flaws or inefficiencies and use problem-solving skills, including both inductive and deductive reasoning, to make modifications that will increase the functions of the computer systems. Based on careful calculations and advanced knowledge, computer hardware engineers develop new designs in the existing components and then integrate these components into a new system. These hardware engineers are responsible for the advances in computer systems.
