2. Computer Hardware Engineering/Technology

Hardware Engineering/Technology trains you to design, develop, maintain, produce, and install computer hardware. Computer hardware include printers, keyboards, modems, chips, circuit boards, mouse, and so on. Tasks carried out by computer hardware engineer/technologist may be compared to that of electronic engineers, but the focus is mainly computer technology related.

Personality Type of a Hardware Engineer

Talent type matters. It’s quite appropriate if you’re often curious about how an appliance or gadget is assembled and wouldn’t mind unscrewing it to find out and recouple it. A hardware engineer/technologist should be organized, and able to see through the procedure of designing, arranging, assembling and installing complex components into a simple user-friendly system.
