Computer manufacturing is on a hit from past many years, and this is the reason the demand for professionals who are capable of repairing and maintaining hardware is increasing. If you have expertise in hardware then you have already reserved and built a successful career for yourself. If you have good knowledge about the subject that is enough to get you a job, but if you also have a diploma or a degree in computer science, telecommunication, etc. it will definitely increase your chances of getting a good networking and hardware jobs in India. In this post we will be discussing about each and every detail about the hardware jobs.
The term hardware refers to computer systems, circuit boards, computer chips, and other equipment like printers, modems and keyboards. People who are working as computer hardware engineers has similar work profile that of electronics engineers, but unlike them, computer hardware engineers are working with computer and other related equipment as mentioned above.
Jobs in this profile include R&D, production, and maintenance. Maximum engineers in this field are hired by the manufacturers of computer equipment. In case you are planning to work in this profile then you will have to complete a specialized training and that can be done after you complete your post-graduation in computer engineering and technology. If you complete a diploma course with special emphasis on training in a specialized branch of engineering that will also help but only in some jobs.
If we talk about technology related to computers then we all know that it is changing quite rapidly; thus challenges for the professionals in this field of hardware is plenteous. They evolve and experiment new techniques and learn new things. If we do comparison between engineers in servicing or R&D with software personnel these professional do not have a hierarchical ladder. However, as an engineer work and prospects remains challenging even after many years.
The advancement in computer technology is only because of the design efforts and intensive research & development done by computer hardware engineers. Therefore, hardware engineering is all about design, implement and development of solutions.
Computer and electronic engineers develop new designs and also modify the old ones. It is important that they are aware of the new products, trends and developments in electronic technology both in India and other countries. It is their job to build the most advanced equipment that to in reasonable price. The employee working in this field also works in research and development. They also design devices which are not a part of the computer such as a modem, printer, etc. While working on the product development engineers spend a good amount of time controlling the product reliability and quality. These engineers who are designing and developing computers are hired by big manufacturing companies.
From appliances to electronic gadgets, computers to aerospace, in almost everything chip and processor are used. India has become a hub for designing chip. Engineer design services can be considered as the biggest opportunity for India. There is potential in everything like manufacturability, chip design, architecture development, verification, synthesis, physical design, test, etc.
In India, this integrated circuit (chip) design industry is growing into a billion dollar market. If we talk about the investments required in this area then the amount is quite huge as a wafer fabrication plant need about $2 billion of investment. Emerson, the US-based engineering giant, and Invensys are significantly contributing in India for the growth of this industry.
Hardware jobs are meant for those who are interested in the IT sector. Completing the right degrees will help you getting the correct hardware jobs. In fact, those who have done diploma course can also make a good career in this field. It is also true that this field will not be affected even by downturns in the economy, as all organizations will always require people to keep their computers functioning.
