Computer engineers create rapid advancements in technology by solving complex problems in computer hardware.
Computer engineers are typically responsible for designing new computer equipment, creating blueprints, testing the completed models, analyzing test results, updating existing computer hardware, and supervising the manufacture of the hardware they designed.
Computer engineers solely ensure that all components of computer hardware function properly together with all of the latest software.

Most computer engineers work in research laboratories to build and test a variety of different computer models. Others are employed in high-tech manufacturing firms, computer system design firms, research and development, and for the federal government. Interestingly enough, more than 95 percent of all computer engineers are employed within a large metropolitan area in the United States, where there are 79,580 jobs for these specialized engineers. Although the majority works full-time, over 25 percent work more than the normal 40-hour week on their research at irregular hours.
Employment for computer engineers is expected to grow slower than average at just 9 percent between 2010 and 2020. Foreign competition will continue to negatively impact the growth of this profession, although there will be a limited number needed to fulfill the demand for new innovative technology. Most job growth is expected to occur within computer consulting firms, where they can work with more closely with software developers.
