Software engineering consists of the application of engineering to the development of software. This subject consists of a detailed study of engineering applied to the design, development and maintenance of software.
Software engineering is used to improve the quality, time and budget efficiency of software and it is adopted for large software systems instead of single applications and programs.
The subject focuses on different subtopics: requirement gathering, software design, software construction, software maintenance, software configuration management, software engineering management, software development process management and generation, software engineering models and methods, software quality, software engineering professional practice, foundational computing and mathematical study.
People started focusing on software engineering in 1968, during a conference focused on the need to develop a better software quality and reliability.
Scientists who focus on this subject are known as software engineers and are focused on the development of different types of software which range from operating systems software to those for network distribution. Additionally, they focus on software for compilers.
Software engineers also focus on creating instruction for a computer to implement tasks. Therefore, software engineers should have strong programming and coding skills.
