What do Electrical & Computer Engineers do?

Electrical engineers are responsible for a wide range of technologies, from portable music players to the global positioning system. They design, develop, test, and supervise the manufacture of electronic equipment such as broadcast and communications systems. Many work in areas closely related to computers.

Computer hardware engineers research, design, develop, and test computer systems and components such as processors, circuit boards, memory devices, networks, and routers. By creating new directions in computer hardware, these engineers create rapid advances in computer technology.
