About CSE™ Program

The Software Engineering Career

Computer software engineers apply the principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to the design, development, testing, and evaluation of the software and systems that make computers work. The tasks performed by these workers evolve quickly, reflecting new areas of specialization or changes in technology, as well as the preferences and practices of employers.

Software engineers can be involved in the design and development of many types of software, including computer games, web applications, mobile applications, word processing and business applications, operating systems and network distribution, and compilers, which convert programs to machine language for execution on a computer.

Career Path

After 3-5 years of experience many Software Engineers are promoted to a Senior Software Engineer position. Depending on the employee's skills and interests, a Senior Software Engineer may later be promoted to a Software Architect (a very senior designer of complex programs) or a role in Project Management.
