About the course
Computer hardware engineering is typically a concentration within an electrical and computer engineering or computer engineering program. Being the most common educational requirement for a computer hardware engineering career. The coursework of computer engineering and electrical engineering programs often overlaps, with such programs being heavy with science and mathematics courses, including those in calculus and physics. There's also a lot of laboratory instruction for science and engineering courses.
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. Digital logic and computer operating systems are normally also studied.
