If you enjoy problem-solving, possess critical thinking skills and have a keen attention to detail, earning a software developer degree could be right for you. Software engineers rely heavily on the ability to analyze and evaluate technical data.
Professionals in this field must have a strong aptitude for reasoning, be detail-oriented and possess interpersonal skills in order to work as part of a team and communicate technical details—both to clients unfamiliar with the language and programmers demanding clear instructions to execute.
