Right now I am currently majoring in Computer Science for game design purposes, but I think now my attention is focusing and leaning more toward Software development/engineer. Now I am currently at a community college, but my question is since I am thinking about focusing on this field is computer science still the good major or would I need to do computer engineer?
I know that computer engineers tend to focus on the hardware aspects of computers, but could an engineering major specialize in software and land a job in software development? Also, are there any kinds of computing jobs where software and hardware sort of meet? I'm trying to decide on whether or not I should major in Computer Science or Computer engineering. Both hardware and software really interest me, but it seems like I'm going to have to decide between one or the other.
Microsoft Shanghai is hiring (Lead) Software Development Engineers, anyone would like to do the jobs? If don't, why?
I want to become a computer software engineer, and I'm wondering what kind of jobs they can get?
So, I am a Quality Assurance Analyst with almost 13 years experience. I am bored with Quality Assurance. I can do it with my eyes closed. My question is this: What is the fastest way to get a job doing software development? I have self studied Java and C#. I also have half a masters degree in Computer Science. My undergrad degree is in something other than computers. Do I go for certificates? Do hiring managers look at those?
I have done diploma in electronics and communication engineering.I am looking for job in software development side is there any possibility of getting?
I am wanting to develop a software engineering skill set, possibly to use in future work as a software engineer. I have some questions about getting into this field.
1.) Where would I go for mentoring in this field? Is there somewhere in the open source community that can let me acquire the experience I need to possibly get a job in software engineering in the future?
2.) Is a consulting career (doing this for clients for hire) viable in the future, once experience is gained?
3.) Since I come from an engineering (including electrical and computer) background, would embedded software engineering be a good fit for myself, or should I just stick to non-embedded programming?
4.) What languages would be a good fit for a.) embedded b.) application and c.) web?
5.) I've heard of a formal software development process/lifecycle? Is this what software engineering covers, and is there an Internet tutorial on this?
6.) Any other tips?
Ok so i am a software engineering student, at a london university, I was watching an interview by a Facebook employee and he was saying we are looking for great programmers, we have 200 hundred people in engineering.
To me a programmer is someone who can write code, but you have to tell them how to do it, to me if you are a programmer you are similar to a construction worker, you have been given a design by an architect, you have to follow that design, you wouldent know how to build something yourself.
Is this correct?
Things like Software development, website design, software engineering. I am going into the IT field but I wish to know what options are available. If possible, could you please put in a short description with the job name. Thanks in advance.
I want to become a computer software engineer. I was wondering what degree should I get in college to persue this career? What classes should I take? And also what is the job like if you have experience? Thanks
I have a lot of experience in programming and software development but as I do not have any contacts in USA, I am finding it very hard to find a job.
Are there agents who can search for jobs on my behalf?
I'm considering a B Mathematics/B Information Technology dual degree after school and I'm wondering how much the Mathematics degree would help in getting a job in software development? I'll be majoring in software engineering. Thanks in advance.
I'm thinking about computer software engineering as a major in college and I'm just wondering what it is exactly? Does it only have to do with computer (as in a physical computer.. pc/mac etc.) specific programs or is it a little bit more broad than that and go into other electronic devices other than computers? Is there a difference between computer software engineering and just software engineering?
Any details on this field would be greatly appreciated.
The job is Software Engineering at Google (Mountain View) Apple (Cupertino) and Microsoft (Redmond).
And what benefits does each company have? how often do they give a raise?
I want to pursue a career in computer programming, I've been looking at courses which will be relevant. I've found these -
BTEC Diploma in IT Level 2
BTEC National Extended Diploma (Software Development) Level 3
Foundation Degree Software Development
BSc Software Engineering Degree
What do you think?
Any tips on how to better my chances of employment in this industry?
Hi guys. I am a new college graduate. Is Software Development and Software Testing/SQA Engineering equally challenging. I have got both the positions but don't know what to choose. I have a special natural ability for finding faults in things. I am also good at developing. I don't know if I should choose SDE or SDET as now development is also becoming very easier as developers are now only learning API's/Libraries and reusing code.
I am a software engineer currently looking to live in Israel for a while. Never been there before so don't really know what to expect. Would need a job of course. Does anyone know how to find a job there before I travel there?
I am currently an electrical engineer working for rail infrastructure, within the communications and control systems. It's been good experience and I've been exposed to project management, design and operations and I have learnt a lot.
I am currently doing a certificate in computer control systems at university which consists of and software development for embedded devices and pretty much computers in general.
I have a big interest in the sort of area and l am planning to someday own my own business as a solutions/ consulting company.
What would be the best way to go about this and what is the best path I should take?
I thought about perhaps getting more experience in project management and learning the technical stuff at uni as a starting point.
Thanks for your help
Hello, i hold a management information systems degree which is not totally related to software development as computer science or software engineering are. But i was thinking to take some software engineering courses through night school at university. I do believe my stronger skills are "management" so i was thinking to hire professionals from india or somewhere else.Honestly, Im confused how to start off or what education should i get to accomplish my dream.
I will appreciate as much feedback as possible.. thank you guys.
Hello, Im studying my 1 year in computer engineering and realize i feel more interested for software development than hardware. Do you believe I can get into software engineering field having a computer engineering degree or should I change to computer science?
