Software Engineering is still a relatively new area of engineering. Software Engineering is not only a technical discipline of its own but also a problem domain where technologies coming from other disciplines are relevant and can play an important role. Here we have ten solid reasons why to be a software Engineer.
Open Source platforms are available in software engineering. You can take any software (whose source code is available) modify it, reuse it and make new things by using the free OSC (Open Source Code). The OSC facility gives freedom to engineers to implement their ideas, and dreams free of cost and provide them a complete working environment.
Choice is in Your Hand
Software Engineering is very wide field and you can choice your career according to your interest. If you are good problem solver then programming welcomes you, if you have interest in interest structure then networking is for you, if you are good analyzer then quality assurance is just for you. In short software engineering has a large list for you and you can chose whatever and you like.
This is the biggest advantage of Software engineering ever I seen. You can work with any team around the world and make your product easily. You can divide your work in parts and can discuss your project with your professor who is hundreds of hundred miles away from you.

Yes I have many examples of my friends who is still studying in the university and earning a lot. Software Engineering introduce the unique ways of learning and earning like, web development, SEO, Blogging, and technical writing. All these fields are from the software engineering and a engineer very well know how to use and take benefits from these.

The Software Engineering is the only Engineering field which provide a Global market to its Developers. You can make software product for any region of the world and sell them through the different global platform.
