A Future in Computer Hardware Engineering Computer Hardware Engineering is something that sparked my interest when I was younger. I was very young when I was first introduced to computers and consoles and such. It mainly started when I was very young and my older brother showed me video games, on systems like the Gameboy. The Gameboy was basically how I started to become interested in video games, and after the handhelds I began to play on consoles. Then in the past couple of years I started to invest my time into computers, or PCs. I always thought about playing video games on computers for a while but always was blinded by the media today about how much it costs to build a good one. The truth is, is that it’s the most practical form of entertainment combined with work that you could possibly invest in, in the kind of society we have today. It wasn’t until around a little over a year ago that I built my very first computer; I was so excited about it. The reason I decided to build one was since I had always heard that computers were so expensive but if you built them, then it isn’t so much money. Not only was my computer practical for entertainment but also for school. After building my computer is when I really started thinking about a serious career field in Computer Hardware Engineering. Building a computer really made me realize that this is something I’m good at and I love learning about. Before this, I had no idea what I was going to be doing. I considered everything from Dental, to Astronomy, to being different kinds of Scientists. Choosing the right career for someone will always be one of the most difficult things the person will do in their life. Thinking about how you want to live the rest of yo... ... middle of paper ... ... get a college that supports what I want to major in and I will need to be able to have a job set up that I can jump into once I am out of college. In conclusion, I’m very excited about becoming a Computer Hardware Engineer. Throughout my life growing up I always wanted a job that I would love doing but also paid a lot, but I guess what person doesn’t want that. Luckily for me I was blessed with a passion for computer hardware. All that is left for me to do is to finish high school, college, and start my career as a Computer Hardware Engineer! 1027 Words Work Cited "Pennsylvania CareerZone." Announcements RSS. N.p., n.d.
