SOFTWARE ENGINEER A software engineer designs and programmes software, operates systems, database systems etc. They know how software and hardware function. The job involves lots of communication and lots of technical work. So they have to be very hard working and good at communication. Also they have to be good at working in a team and they have to be very good at analysis. First degree in BTEC or HND in a subject such as computing, computer science or software development. Also it will require practical experience of software development with the theoretical knowledge gained through a degree/diploma Software engineering is the discipline of designing, writing, testing, implementing and maintaining software. Without software engineering computers would have no functionality. And if there Is no software there will be no computers.
WEB DEVELOPER Web developing covers everything to do with building websites it is very technical and involves programming and designing to be a web developer you need to be creative, good at problem solving and you need to be good at analytical thinking. BTEC National Diploma in Art and Design (Multimedia), SQA National Certificate in IT Degrees in IT, computer science, programming, software engineering etc. BTEC/SQA higher national diplomas. Web development is what makes a website function. It is a way for businesses to attract customers and promote the company. It also involves web applications as business also require a mobile website and mobile apps. quality web development can now be the difference between the success and failure of a business.
SOFTWARE TESTER A software tester tests applications and software and they have to think about the different ways it can be used also they have to consider how it could fail. They prepare test scripts and macros and analyse results. To be a software tester you need to be organised, creative also you need to be good at telling attention to detail. Also you need to be good at communicating and investigative thinking. There isn't many courses that focus specifically of software testing the best way to become a software tester is to gain a level of development experience from a university or a previous job. Software testing is very important it is about making sure the software works to the best it can. Also making sure it meets its predefined goals. Also a software tester has to find faults in the software and where the software could go wrong.
NETWORK ENGINEER A network engineering role involves setting up administering, maintaining and upgrading communication systems local area and wide area networks. They are responsible for security, data storage. In this job you have to be very good at planning, communication, analysis and problem solving. Network engineering is important because you have to install and maintaining new server hardware and software which means if there was no network engineers communications would fail. Qualifications or experience in the following subjects computer science electrical/electronic engineering physics mathematics computer software/computer systems engineering
TECHNICAL SUPPORT Technical supporter often work for hardware manufactures and suppliers. They solve problems that customers or consumers have. But many work for end-user companies supporting, monitoring and maintaining workplace technology. In this job the worker must have a wide range of tech knowledge also they must also be good at communicating and listening and they must be very patient. Technical support is important because they are there to assist customers who are having trouble. And they are there to help try and find the reason for the cause of difficulty. A qualification or experience in the following subjects business information technology; business systems engineering; computer networking and hardware; computer science; computer software development; information technology; internet engineering; software engineering
TECHNICAL SALES This job involves selling hardware or extol the business benefits of whole systems or services. It also involves phone calls, meetings, conferences and drafting proposals. In this job you must have a good product knowledge and you must be persuasive. Also you must have drive and mobility and business awareness. Technical sale s is important because there job is to sell hardware and if there was no hardware computers wouldn't function so hardware is needed to make a computer. A degree in the following subjects engineering; physics; mathematics; applied science
