Our Technology & Engineering division handles a wide variety of different roles in different industries and different sectors, many of which come close to areas covered by other divisions, most notably IT Networks & Comms. The difference between these two divisions is as follows:
Design, development and production of hardware, software & systems products.
Installation, management and maintenance of networking & telecommunications products.
If for any reason the jobs or information you are looking for don’t appear to be contained under Technology & Engineering, you may wish to look under different divisions or call us on 01342 330500.
Technology & Engineering
Our clients cover all key market sectors, including electronics, telecoms, broadcast, space, aviation, aerospace & defence, rail, automotive, technology and infrastructure. Their primary recruitment needs fall into three key areas:
The term “software engineering” was widely adopted after having been used by the chairman (F.L. Bauer) for the “1968 NATO Software Engineering Conference”, held in Garmish in
The discipline of software engineering encompasses knowledge, tools and methods for defining software requirements, as well as performing software design, construction, testing and maintenance. Software engineering also draws on knowledge from fields such as computer engineering, computer science, mathematics, project management, quality management, software ergonomics and systems engineering.
Systems engineering is an interdisciplinary field of engineering that focuses on the development and organisation of complex artificial systems. Systems engineering integrates other disciplines and specialist groups into a team effort, forming a structured development process that proceeds from concept to production and operation. Systems engineering considers both the business and the technical needs of all customers, with the goal of providing a quality product that meets the user’s needs.
The systems engineering process usually begins at the very start of a project, but it can also be introduced in the middle. Gold Group works specifically within and throughout the entire systems engineering lifecycle.
Hardware engineers are responsible for the specification and design of computer and communications hardware products and components. They normally use specialized Computer-Aided Design (CAD) tools and powerful modelling software to create specifications and designs for new or improved computer and communications components, such as the Intel Pentium III processor or the microprocessor which powers a cellular telephone. Hardware engineering generally requires a significant background in electrical or electronics engineering, computer science or materials engineering and training in the use of CAD equipment to model hardware designs.
