Software Engineers design and develop large software systems. In addition, they may lead teams of software developers or quality assurance engineers. They also work with users and customers to understand their needs. Software systems we take for granted, such as Microsoft Office, are implemented by software engineers. Software engineers employ innovative software development approaches, such as Agile software development, to effectively manage software development projects.
If you have broad interests, or are interested in applying software to solve practical real-world problems, software engineering may be just the right career for you.
