Hardware developers:developing prototypes and devices
Identifying required hardware solutions, developing concepts and building prototypes that can be presented in a convincing manner while taking into account both costs and benefits – all these tasks belong to the job of hardware developers. They therefore need to have sound specialist knowledge in the areas of electrical and communications engineering. Besides, they need to be experienced with the required software.
Which career prospects do hardware developers have?
Irrespective of the application area, it is essential that hardware keeps pace with the further development of the available software solutions. IT systems, and hence hardware and software combinations, can be found in almost every company and organisation, and even the serial production of hardware is based on the development of suitable prototypes. Qualified hardware developers with the required expertise and soft skills thus have excellent prospects on the job market.
