To become a software engineer, you need to have studied maths and computer science as compulsory subjects until HSC level.Therefore at school until 12th level,
The above mentioned bachelor degrees run for about three years and completing this degree, you may be offered Software Engineer roles in technology companies. However, if you would like to study further, you may also choose the following master study pathways.
Almost the first three degrees mentioned above are for two years duration and the last degree mentioned, MCA is of three year duration.
As you have mentioned your desire to become a Software Engineer, choosing PCCM at school level and then studying a BE/ BTech Computer science is the most desirable route. As completing an Engineering degree will certainly qualify you to be a Software engineer.
Hope this helps. Good luck.
Software engineers have good scope in terms of development of software or programming. From computer operating systems to "video" games all require software and there comes the needs of software engineers.
The main role of a Software technician is to analyse the users needs and then help to design, tests and develop software by applying computer technologies and mathematical concepts.
As said Software's require a thorough knowledge related to computers and maths, so to become a Software engineer, you need the base of computers and mathematics.
Thus post 12th, any stream but having studied Maths, you could opt for
But if you are interested in Engineering, then for 12th, you would've to opt for Science stream with a combination of PCM ( Physics, Chemistry, Math).
The only difference between a Computer Science graduate and a Computer engineer, would be that as a engineer you would be involved in the process of developing an running a software whereas as a computer science graduate, you would be mainly into applications of the made software.
Also remember, that since there are new development happening in the fields of computes, you need to keep yourself updated regularly. through certificates and diploma programs.
Choose wisely and then decide...
All the very best....
