Natalie’s Answer

Software Engineering is a very interesting and broad space! Within the job title "software engineer" there are so many different things you could work on or specialize in. For example, you could be someone that works on making websites (this is often called "frontend"), someone that works on the APIs and infrastructure that make the website run (this is often called "backend"), or someone that designs mobile apps. Krishna's answer refers to another type of software engineer that is focused on making sure the infrastructure for a software product works.

If you aren't sure if you would like software engineering, a good place to start is free online coding classes. Codeacademy is a free online resource that can teach you both frontend and backend skills. If you have fun with that, you can try making your own projects - there are thousands of "learn to code" project ideas out there that you can look up online!

If you are thinking about studying software engineering, look for a school that has a credible computer science degree - most colleges have computer science as a major now.
