Hardware Engineers


Employment in hardware engineering will grow about as fast as the average for all occupations through 2028, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Strong growth will occur at management, scientific, and technical consulting services firms (where employment is expected to increase 21.5 percent) because manufacturers are increasingly contracting out hardware design. Additional growth will occur as a result of engineers being needed to develop computer chips that are embedded in electronics such as medical devices, household appliances, and automobiles. Opportunities will be best for those have experience with computer software and a computer engineering degree from an ABET-accredited program.
