Software Engineering is developing, designing and maintaining software systems that are reliable and efficiently carries out the tasks smoothly. The software system is created in collaboration with the needs and requirements of the clients. The software designed must be user friendly for the staff or customers to use.

Software Engineering is an integration of computer science, computer programming, mathematics and engineering practice. 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.

Software Engineers need to ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date as technology changes rapidly. Computer software can be developed for any function for control and automation, manufacturing, business, and management systems.

Restaurants use custom-made software to ensure their accounts are kept properly and orders for food can be made efficiently so that wastage is managed.

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

They also install, configure and maintain software systems used by commercial or manufacturing companies. They can work with the company to coordinate each department’s needs such as ordering, billing, inventory, payroll, and records.

Software Engineers could also help set up the company’s intranets or networks that link computers within the company. This helps the communication between the departments. To develop tailor-made software systems,

Software Engineers will begin by meeting up with the client to gather information on what they would like for the software to achieve. They need to gain a thorough understanding of the client’s business and information needs, and analyse the current system.

After that, they will then analyse the information and then begin to design, develop and test the software in

real situations. Software Engineers will create detailed sets of instructions, called algorithms. The algorithms tell the computer what to do. They also are used to convert instructions into a computer language.

This process is called programming or coding. Software Engineers must be experts in operating systems and middleware to ensure that the underlying systems will work properly. Software Engineers can also develop “off-the-shelf” or “ready-made’ software packages that can be integrated into an existing operating system. The ability to integrate the software requires a thorough knowledge of the software packages and programming languages.

They will need to provide the appropriate interfaces to be used to integrate them. Software Engineers works with in a team to design new hardware, software, and systems. The team may consist of engineering, marketing, manufacturing, and design people, who work together to release a product.

Software Engineers need to use different programming languages, depending on the purpose of the program. The programming languages most often used are C, C++, and Java, with Fortran and COBOL used less commonly. Other programming languages that are in high demand are HTML, XHTML, XML, PHP, Visual Basic.

With the growth of smart phones comes with it the demand for the programming languages related to it such as the programming language, Objective C, and its software development tool (XCode) for the iOS market.

Software Engineers will also need to have a strong foundation in computer science, logic and mathematics.

What subjects do I need to be good at in order to study Software Engineering in Malaysia?

MATHS! If you want to study Software Engineering, you will need to be good in Mathematics. You should have an “A” in SPM for Additional Maths or at least a strong credit. Students always make the mistake of choosing to study Software Engineering because they like to play with computers. If you don’t have a strong foundation in Maths, you should choose some other course.

Software Engineering Vs. Computer Science

Being in Sabah made it difficult for me to survey the universities in Peninsula. I found EduSpiral online and they provided detailed information & helped me with my application. They even took me around the university for a tour when I went to visit. Xavier Phang, Software Engineering at Asia Pacific University

Both computer science and software engineering curricula generally require a foundation in programming fundamentals and basic computer science theory. They differ in their focus beyond these core elements. Computer science programs tend to keep the core small and then expect students to choose among more advanced courses (such as systems, networking, database, artificial intelligence, theory, etc.).

In contrast, Software Engineering programs generally expect students to focus on a range of topics that are essential to the Software Engineering agenda (problem modeling and analysis, software design, software verification and validation, software quality, software process, software management, etc.).

While both Computer Science and Software Engineering programs typically require

students to experience team project activity, Software Engineering programs usually requires more team involvement as effective team processes are essential to effective Software Engineering practices.

In addition, a key requirement specified by the Software Engineering curriculum guidelines is that Software Engineering students should learn how to build software that is genuinely useful and usable by the customer and satisfies all the requirements defined for it.

Demand for Software Testing Professionals in Malaysia

In a report in the Star publications, it is said that there is a lack of certified professionals in software testing. Software testing is considered essential in the development of top-notched software as it shorten the cycle to commercialize the product and significantly reduces the cost of support and development due to proficient testing implementation.”

“The country has made significant progress in the realm of certified software testers, said the Malaysian Software Testing Board (MSTB). It said that the segment grew from having a mere 90 certified testers to 240 over the past one year.

But more growth is needed. “We have made good progress but considering that there are 110,000 certified testers worldwide, we have a long way to go before we can be considered as having a respectable software-testing services community,” said MSTB president Mastura Abu Samah.

A recent survey conducted by market researcher Ovum shows that the global computer software and systems testing services market is expected to grow from US$13bil (RM46bil) this year to US$56bil (RM201bil) by 2013.”

So, what does all the awards matter to you as a student who is looking for a university? The awards are evidence of quality and commitment of the university to providing you with a solid education in IT.

There are many IT graduates out there and many more graduating. With so many jobs available and yet there are many IT graduates who are not able to find a job. Why is that? The answer is because the colleges and universities have not prepared their students with the knowledge and necessary IT skills to secure a job.

According to Dr. Shawn Tan in his article in Digital News Asia on March 13, 2013, stated “While it is not difficult to hire people, it is increasingly difficult to hire good people, something that is corroborated with the situation on the ground. What the entire industry sorely needs is brains, but what we get are mostly bodies. For some reason, our universities are not graduating the right kind of people. Therefore, the real problem is that we have one too many bad Computer Science programs in our country.”

In addition to IT knowledge and skills, students also lack communication skills and possess a poor command of the English language.  Without all these, you are unable to pass through the first interview.

Don’t choose a university or college because it is cheap and where the students speak mostly in their mother tongue. Although the fees are cheap, but in this environment, you will not learn the valuable communication skills that will help you to succeed in your future career. This means a lower salary for the next 60 years of your work life.
