For many tech companies and startups, a degree is not required to be hired as a software engineer. They want to know that you're a skilled and capable engineer.


However, studying computer science and/or computer engineering would be very helpful.


You're also gonna want to find some internships or get some hands on industry experience otherwise by freelancing for example.

A Bachelors of Science degree in computer engineering is a good start.


Many colleges offer them - my son is pursuing an Electrical & Computer Engineering degree and is enjoying it.


You have to be educationally disciplined - it's a major that will require a lot of time learning and practicing what you learn in a team environment.
