What is the future for Hardware Engineering??

Automation will be key as systems and applications become more complex, and testers will need to rely on testing programs they have created to handle many more tests than they would be able to cope with individually. With a greater level of automation, you will need to run fewer tests, while still being able to stay on top of the reporting.
