What does a Digital Design Engineer do?

Digital design engineers create, develop, and improve digital systems and tools, taking a lead role in overseeing the entire process from concept to implementation. They configure and evaluate system architecture, and use modeling and testing to assess and refine designs. They take an active role in leading validation and verification processes and developing testing programs. They regularly use coding and programming languages, and customize designs for real-world use settings.

Digital design engineers typically have at least a bachelor’s degree in engineering, although some employers require a master’s degree or other advanced training. Must be comfortable working with digital design architecture and related tools and technologies. Requires proficiency with standard programming and coding languages, and hands-on experience with modeling tools, along with excellent analytical and problem-solving skills.
