Computer Hardware Engineers are mainly responsible for system configurations and updates. Sounds simple, doesn't it? But when you look at their roles in depth it's pretty interesting and of course not that simple. I am listing down a few of their roles and responsibilities, other people working with similar fields can add up if I've missed out on any. 

  • In a company, there are different sectors working with different fields and every field has different system's requirement. Computer Hardware Engineers plan and design the requirements that need to be fulfilled with every employee working in a different field in the company. 
  • They plan and design the layout of systems and check on what modifications or changes have to be made.
  • Analyze user and client requirements
  • Gain continuous knowledge of how the system can be made better, efficient and faster, producing higher and better results. 
  • Document the current system specs along with the bugs and defects and how can those overpowered. Design various mechanisms for overpowering those bugs. Shortlist one of the best mechanism and explain why. 
  • Computer Hardware Engineers need to have excellent writing skills as documentation is one of their main tasks.

@vishnu, wWhat documentation do they have to maintain?

But TBH, you should be aiming for a better career. There is not much growth here. And neither is it the most interesting of fields.
Documentation is something that is mandatory at any job. Here the documentation would include writing about the discovery of the bug in the current system, how they are affecting the progress, the why and how of the bug occurrences , possible methods to eliminate them and the expected behavior after the update. There has to be a mandatory report on this and obviously would need higher authorities approval before taking a step forward.
I agree with you @Vardhan, there are much better profiles with more interesting jobs, better pay and faster and better growth. But if this profile interests you then go for it. I would suggest exploring other fields and profiles as well.
