Why should I study software engineering?
Though software engineering is a relatively new discipline, it is consistently ranked by Money Magazine as
one of the “Best Jobs in
America.” Why? Software engineers are needed in virtually every industry at every level.
Software engineering is much more than designing and developing applications. As our machines, homes and cities
become more equipped with sensors, transmitters and communication systems, software engineers help us connect the
bots in fun and creative ways. The Bureau of
Labor Statistics predicts a 17 percent growth in the field by 2024, which makes software engineering one of
the fastest growing career fields in America.
Is software engineering for me?
Software engineering requires an ability to design and implement creative solutions. It often requires long hours in
front of a computer screen. But the trade-off is you’ll earn a high salary to work on some very cool projects;
like building video games or even designing military-grade applications for satellites and lasers.
