    Re: How to become a software engineer?

    Good that you have set a goal for yourself at this point of time.
    Software engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with various
    aspects of computers mainly the software part. The softwares are programmes
    which are equally important as the hardware components.

    So this branch deals with designing, configuring, testing, operating and
    maintainence of softwares. Each of these topics are in depth subjects in itself.

    However to become a software engineer, you first need to take science stream
    with mathematics in your 10+2 standard, after you compleate your 10th.
    After finishing your 12 th standard exams you will be then eligible to sit in
    various engineering entrance examinations based on the eligibility requirements
    you fill.

    Some of the engineering entrance examinations that will get you in some esteemed
    engineering institutes of India are IIT JEE, AIEEE, DCE, VITEEE,SRMEEE,Manipal
    university entrance, MS Ramaiah entrance, BITSAT etc. You need to secure good rank
    in any of these exams to get a seat in software engineering.

    Once you enter a good institutes you should then only concentrate on studies
    during you four year of course duration . You shall pay special focus on basics
    of software engineering especially programming languages like C, C++ etc.

    After compleating your engineering , you can get job either through campus
    placements or you have to try on your own. Again campus placements are
    organised in reputed colleges only. So try to pursue your course throgh a A grade
    engineering institute only. You can get job in various companies like TCS, Wipro,
    Patni Computers, Infosys, Accenture, IBM, etc.

    Software Engineer is that who is developing the software of different kinds. There programming is very high. They can find the logics within minutes. So if you have decided to become the Software Engineer then you have to pass your 12th class with the PCM subject and then take admission in B.Tech with CS branch. To get admission in B.Tech you have to give the entrance exam like IIT-JEE, AIEEE etc. on the basis of your rank you will get a college. B.Tech is four year degree program and after completing your degree you can apply for the IT companies like IBM, TCS, INFOSYS, MICROSOFT, APPLE etc and can get a good job of Software Engineer.

    As you are very much interested in Software Engineering Profession , first complete your 10th standard with a good percentage .

    Then join Intermediate i.e 10+2 in Maths and Science Background and maintain an aggregate if 75+ .
    Then appear for Engineering Entrance Examination called as EAMCET which is conducted all over the state .

    Depending on your score your rank will be allotted .
    And depending on your Rank you are allocated a seat in an Engineering College .

    So in order to become Software Engineer select the stream as CSE i.e Computer Science Engineering .

    Once you complete Engineering course with min 65 to 70 percent as Aggregate then you are placed in a top Multi National Company as an SOFTWARE ENGINEER .
    This Engineering course is a 4years duration course with 8 semesters in total .
    To become a Software Engineer you should not have any Backlogs in Engineering course and only 2 backlogs are Exempted .

    For this you should also have good communication skills , so for this you start speaking in English apart from your Mother Tongue .

    Good Luck !!!
