Software Engineers

Outlook

Employment opportunities for software engineers are expected to grow 17 percent, much faster than the average for all occupations through 2024, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). Demands made on computers increase every day and from all industries. Rapid growth in the computer systems design and related industries will account for much of this growth. In addition, businesses will continue to implement new and innovative technology to remain competitive, and they will need software engineers to do this. Software engineers will also be needed to handle ever-growing capabilities of computer networks, e-commerce, and wireless technologies, as well as the security features needed to protect such systems from outside attacks. Growth in mobile technologies and the rapid increase in the number of products that use software will create excellent job opportunities for software engineers.
