A software engineer applies mathematical analysis and the principles of computer science in order to design and develop computer software.

There are many types of software that a software engineer can develop, such as operating systems, computer games, middleware, business applications and network control systems. Changes in technology and new areas of specialization keeps this profession evolving at a rapid pace.

Software engineers must also possess interpersonal skills, and be able to effectively communicate with users in order to train, test, and debug software all the way to the end product. They are often involved from the early stages of software planning right through to the testing, development, training, and support stages.

Software engineers can be divided into two categories:

Applications Engineers

Application engineers create or adapt applications for businesses and organizations by analyzing the end user's needs. They will design, build, install, and maintain these applications or programs.

Systems Engineers

Systems engineers coordinate the creation, maintenance and growth of a business or organization's computer systems. They coordinate each department's needs, suggest technical direction, and set up any networks that link up computers with the company.

Being a software engineer is a great career choice for someone who is exceptionally good at both left and right-brained thinking (analytical skills as well as problem-solving skills). Software engineers are instinctive problem-solvers, good at working with others and focused on seeing issues through to their successful completion.

A software engineer should be well-versed in:

  • * Programming and coding
  • * Fundamentals of computer science
  • * Design and architecture
  • * Algorithms and data structures
  • * Information analysis
  • * Debugging software
  • * Testing software
