    you should prefer taking computer science along with physics chemistry and maths in 11th and 12th standard.If you have computer in 9th and 10th also it is very good.You should study and understand computer well in order to be a good software engineer if you have decided so which is good.It will be a plus point over others if you have studied some programming language before you join B.tech.It is very helpful later and you can always build on the existing knowledge.

    To become a software engineer. One have to passed atleast 10+2. After 10+2 you can take admission in any good college to pursue B.Tech in computer science or Information Technology.

    You can take any subject in 10. However you have to take PCM(physics, Chemistry, Maths) with any two elective subjects. There is no restrictions of elective subjects to take admission in B.Tech. But as you decided you want to become computer engineer. You should take computer science as one of your elective.

    To get admission in b.Tech you have to face several entrance examinations. You should concentrate on your studies to crack these exams to secure a seat in B.Tech computer science in good engineering college.

    After passing your 12th class with the PCM and more then 50% marks you should take admission in B.Tech with the CS branch. After then you can do further study if you are interested and take admission in M.Tech.

    The other way is take admission in BCA and after that you will do MCA and join any company you will success your dream.

    After completing plus two with mathematics, you can prepare for entrance exams. After clearing entrance exams, you can go for engineering stream. You can opt for Computer Science stream. This is a professional course and the duration of course is 8 semesters. After completing computer engineering you can become a software engineer. This is a most sought after profession nowadays. You can also do a graduation in BCA. After completion of BCA, you can go for MCA. Master of Computer Application is another option for you. This is a six semester post graduation course. After finishing MCA, you can become a software engineer.

    First clear your 10th class exam.
    I think you have just heard about the name of software engg only. Dont decide now, you have lot of time for that.
    Try to find about all other engg field & then decide, no need to hurry at present, just focus on your 10th class.
    Even if you have not studied computer science in 11th & 12th, still you can become a good software engineer.
    Read education times of TOI. It will be useful for you for chosing career field.

    One have to passed atleast 10+2.But as you decided you want to become computer engineer. You should take computer science as one of your elective.its totally depends on you.Select the stream which you most like.

    The other way is take admission in BCA and after that you will do MCA and join any company you will success your dream.

    for becoming a software engineer you must get more than 60% marks in your 10th exams.after that you must take Math and computer science as your subjects,or you can have PCM as your subjects.
    Then you can do B.Tech in computer science or in IT. or you can do BCA and the MCA to become as a software engineer.
    you must get have a good percentage in your exams.

    for getting admitted in Btech you should apply for engineering exams like AIEEE,IITJEE etc after 12th.
    best of luck!!!!!!

    Re: Which subject should I take If I want to become a Software Engineer?

    As you want to become Software Engineer in future,so you must have to complete your 12Th first.The basic educational requirement for Engineering admission is to clear your 12Th with Physics,Chemistry,Maths(PCM) as compulsory subjects and any two elective subjects.So,as you want to get admission in Engineering you must go for Physics,Chemistry,Mathematics as compulsory subjects in 11Th,12Th and you also have to clear your 12Th with minimum 60% marks.
    After completing your 12Th with PCM,you need to qualify the National Level Engineering Entrance Tests such as AIEEE,IIT-JEE.On the basis of your rank in these Entrance tests,you will be assigned College.The higher rank you will score,the better College you will get.

    As you want to become Software Engineer,so you must have to take up Computer Science Engineering or IT Engineering in B.tech,because Software Engineering is part of Computer and IT Engineering,it is not a particular branch of Engineering.

    So,after completing your Engineering degree in either Computer Science or IT Engineering,you will able to fulfill your dream of becoming a Software Engineer.
    All the best.

    hi,
    if you want to become a software engineer you can go for b.tech
    and another option is to do degree where you can take comp.sc with statistics. in today competitive field statistics is playing a vital role and if you go to any profession there you overcome with this stream.
    if you take degree bsc(stats) it ill be easy for you to study because there will be a subject regarding stats in mca
    if you want to become software engineer these are the best options to do with i.e.,
    B.TECH
    MCA

    good luck

    Re: Which subject should I take If I want to become a Software Engineer?

    It is good that you have made a mission for you career at this early stage of your studies.
    Software engineering is a branch of engineering that deals with the design and devolopment
    of software, which is basically in simple words a collection of programmes written in a manner
    to achieve certain objectives by the software.
    If you want to pursue software engineering after 12 th you should select science stream in
    10+2. In science stream you have to choose Physics, chemistry and maths as compulsary subjects
    in order to pursue engineering in any branch.With these subjects you will need to select one more
    optional subject out of economics or computer science or some other subject. Since you want to pursue
    computer engineering later so you can select computer science as optional subject.It will help to
    devolope some basic knowledge of programming language like C, C++ from right now and help you in
    future.After compleating your 12th, you can give various engineering entrance examinations like
    IIT-JEE,AIEEE, and other state level engineering entrances to get admission in some prestigious
    engineering institute.

    Dear friend,

    you have to do some hard work and get above 70% in the 10th exam, then you take the science maths subject.

    in this subject you will be taken the optional physics, chemistry and maths.

    you have to work hard and again get 70%in the 12th,

    now you can prepare for the entrance exam like:-

    IIT

    AIEEE

    PET

    VITEEE

    etc,

    please make a good rank and get a good engineering college in india. now you take the computer science branch and keep study for four years, now you will be a software engineer.

    best fo luck.

    Hello little software engineer.....
    If your ambition is to become a software engineer then you must take computer science as one of your subject.
    When you take biology also you will be eligible but the thing is you may miss out so many basic concepts in
    Computers. So, better take up computer as one of your subject. Also from now you can start doing any computer courses
    during vacation times. It will be of great help. I wish you best of luck.

    HIeeeee



    You should have computer science in the 11th and 12th class with Physics, Chemistry and Mathematics also should like to take.

    If you have a computer subject in 9 th and 10 th, it is very good.

    You must understand computer study well in order to decide which is good if you do a good software engineer.

    The others can be a plus point if you have some programming language study before you join B.tech.

    This latter is very useful and you can always build on existing knowledge.
