A career that both intrigues me and has qualities I desire is physical design engineering. A physical design engineer is responsible for building a portion of a computer chip. The engineer’s job revolves around placing and routing components of a chip. During the placement portion of the building of a chip, the engineering team must figure out the most effective way to place the components of a chip and properly route the wires into the proper locations. After an engineer properly routes the wires, a physical design engineer transforms the design into a blueprint. Blueprints are essential to the development of a chip. Without blueprints, the cost of producing a finalized chip would be much higher. A physical design engineer is must interact with other engineering teams to propose designs and solve problems. Interacting with other engineering teams will speed up the process of making a
