Software Engineering Training
Software engineering is a branch of computing science that focuses on the process of analyzing user requirements and then designing, building, and testing software application which will satisfy those requirements.
The software engineering field is broad. Common roles include mobile developers, applications architects, quality assurance analysts and database administrators. However, there are two primary types of software engineers: applications software developers and systems software developers.
Applications software developers work with graphic designers, project managers, marketers and customer success staff. Client-focused they work both on the front-end and back-end of projects. They may be called upon to conduct requirements analysis or tweak software and release updates. Application software developers also develop applications for iOS, Android, Windows, Linux and more.
Systems software developers on the other hand are involved mostly in the back-end of projects and work with data science professionals, senior systems architects, development teams and senior management.
Systems software developers build operating systems and networks for user-facing applications and are responsible for both the hardware and software needs. They often serve as general IT managers or systems architects, design and enforce IT standards and maintain IT documentation as well as update to new technologies.
The critical challenges faced by software engineers are considerable. For example, in safety-critical areas such as space, aviation, nuclear power plants, etc., the cost of software failure can be massive because lives are at risk. There’s also considerable pressure to produce because a surging market demands faster turnaround times.
There’s also ongoing education due to advances in technology and the increased complexity of software needed for new applications.
To say software engineers are in high demand would be a gross understatement. According to the US Department of Labor, there were well over 1 million people employed as software developers in 2019.
As more and more of us rely on smart devices, the number of software developers will only increase, with job outlook predicted to grow at 21% over the next nine years.
Thanks to strong industry demand and their own technical expertise, skilled software engineers on both the applications and the systems sides are compensated well for the value they deliver.
In fact the Bureau of Labor Statistics lists the median annual salary for applications developers at $103,620 and at $110,000 for systems developers.
