Hello dear student...


To become a computer software engineer, you should start preparation from high school level, if you are very sure to go in this line.
You must love programming, if you are still in high school and not explored programming start doing it now. If you are good in maths and science it is a plus point for you.
Get a good hand on all the maths you can like algebra, calculus, geometry, trigonometry and graphs. which will really help you in future. You will need so much of maths subject to complete any programming or say engineering programming, start to college level maths before only before entering college.
Plan out every thing well for you, You need a degree for sure to be a computer software engineer, for that you have to complete your four year of degree course. It is always important to score well in college to increase your chances for better placements and every thing.
You need to have a out of box thinking attitude too which will make to one step ahead of others. Keep always a problem solving attitude in life.
If you already have some dream companies in mind like IBM, Intel, Microsoft, Google etc, than you need to have a computer science degree in your hand with good grades too.
always keep your self updated about latest and advance technologies in market which are hot and buzzing.The college will not simply teach you everything you need to push your self further all the time. Buy some additional technical books and teach your self.
You need to do internship too in college be prepared for that also if you are not seeing any good company for internship than try to do some side by side projects to add on to your talent and resume too.
If possible try to build a good contact network with software engineers and try to do some projects under their guidance which will really help you a lot and will give you a practical learning experience.
Always try to be one step ahead from all to be in the desired place of your choice, always gain some extra talent like real time which will increase your chances of selection.

Thank you
