I want to be a computer hardware engineer, and work for intel designing the integrated circuits.. Will I need to learn and use assembly for that? I assume I would only be using my circuitry knowledge but I'm not sure if my position would require a programming language.

I suspect that getting a position actually designing silicon logic is extremely hard.

It would depend on what part you were designing, but if you were designing core x86 CPU logic, I suspect you'd not only know assembly put would also be able to do bare binary code and compile stuff mentally...
