Software Engineering is developing, designing and maintaining software systems that are reliable and efficiently carries out the tasks smoothly. The software system is created in collaboration with the needs and requirements of the clients. The software designed must be user friendly for the staff or customers to use.

Software Engineering is an integration of computer science, computer programming, mathematics and engineering practice. Software engineers apply the principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to the design, development, testing, and evaluation of the software and systems that make computers work.

Students after SPM or O-Levels may go for the Foundation in Computing at Asia Pacific University for 1 year before continuing on to the 3-year UK Dual Award  Bachelor of Science (Hons) in Software Engineering degree. With 3 credits in SPM or O-Levels including Maths, students may go for the 2-year Diploma in Information & Communications Technology or Diploma in Information & Communications Technology with specialism in Software Engineering and then enter into Year 2 of the BSc. (Hons) Software Engineering degree at Asia Pacific University. Pre-University students with the relevant results in STPM, A-Levels, SAM, CPU, AUSMAT, etc. can enter directly into Year 1 of the BSc. (Hons) Software Engineering degree.

It is important to choose the best university in Malaysia to study your  Software Engineering degree programme as it will equip you with the necessary knowledge and skills to succeed in your career.

According to research, the job prospects for software engineers in Malaysia are very good and well trained IT professionals can earn a high salary. It is important to choose the best university in Malaysia to study the software engineering diploma or degree course so that you can gain the knowledge and skills to succeed in your career.

What do you do as a Software Engineer in Malaysia?

Graduates from Asia Pacific University will receive a UK Dual Award degree from Staffordshire University. An impressive 95% of APU’s graduates obtain jobs before graduation.

Software engineers are involved in the design and development of a variety of software, including computer games, word processing and business applications, operating systems and network distribution, and compilers, which convert programs to machine language for execution on a computer.

They also install, configure and maintain software systems used by commercial or manufacturing companies. They can work with the company to coordinate each department’s needs such as ordering, billing, inventory, payroll, and records.

Software Engineers could also help set up the company’s intranets or networks that link computers within the company. This helps the communication between the departments. To develop tailor-made software systems,

Software Engineers will begin by meeting up with the client to gather information on what they would like for the software to achieve. They need to gain a thorough understanding of the client’s business and information needs, and analyse the current system.

After that, they will then analyse the information and then begin to design, develop and test the software in real situations.

Software Engineers will create detailed sets of instructions, called algorithms. The algorithms tell the computer what to do. They also are used to convert instructions into a computer language.

This process is called programming or coding. Software Engineers must be experts in operating systems and middleware to ensure that the underlying systems will work properly.

Software Engineers can also develop “off-the-shelf” or “ready-made’ software packages that can be integrated into an existing operating system. The ability to integrate the software requires a thorough knowledge of the software packages and programming languages.

They will need to provide the appropriate interfaces to be used to integrate them. Software Engineers works with in a team to design new hardware, software, and systems. The team may consist of engineering, marketing, manufacturing, and design people, who work together to release a product.

Software Engineers need to ensure that their knowledge is up-to-date as technology changes rapidly. Computer software can be developed for any function for control and automation, manufacturing, business, and management systems. Restaurants use custom-made software to ensure their accounts are kept properly and orders for food can be made efficiently so that wastage is managed.

What do you need to know as a Software Engineer in Malaysia?

Software Engineers need to use different programming languages, depending on the purpose of the program.

The programming languages most often used are C, C++, and Java, with Fortran and COBOL used less commonly. Other programming languages that are in high demand are HTML, XHTML, XML, PHP, Visual Basic.

With the growth of smart phones comes with it the demand for the programming languages related to it such as the programming language, Objective C, and its software development tool (XCode) for the iOS market.

Software Engineers will also need to have a strong foundation in computer science, logic and mathematics.

What subjects do I need to be good at in order to study Software Engineering in Malaysia?

MATHS! If you want to study Software Engineering, you will need to be good in Mathematics. You should have an “A” in SPM for Additional Maths or at least a strong credit. Students always make the mistake of choosing to study Software Engineering because they like to play with computers. If you don’t have a strong foundation in Maths, you should choose some other course.

Software Engineering Vs. Computer Science

Both computer science and software engineering curricula generally require a foundation in programming fundamentals and basic computer science theory. They differ in their focus beyond these core elements. Computer science programs tend to keep the core small and then expect students to choose among more advanced courses (such as systems, networking, database, artificial intelligence, theory, etc.).

In contrast, Software Engineering programs generally expect students to focus on a range of topics that are essential to the Software Engineering agenda (problem modeling and analysis, software design, software verification and validation, software quality, software process, software management, etc.).

While both Computer Science and Software Engineering programs typically require

students to experience team project activity, Software Engineering programs usually requires more team involvement as effective team processes are essential to effective Software Engineering practices.

In addition, a key requirement specified by the Software Engineering curriculum guidelines is that Software Engineering students should learn how to build software that is genuinely useful and usable by the customer and satisfies all the requirements defined for it.

Demand for Software Testing Professionals in Malaysia

In a report in the Star publications, it is said that there is a lack of certified professionals in software testing.

Software testing is considered essential in the development of top-notched software as it shorten the cycle to commercialize the product and significantly reduces the cost of support and development due to proficient testing implementation.”

“The country has made significant progress in the realm of certified software testers, said the Malaysian Software Testing Board (MSTB). It said that the segment grew from having a mere 90 certified testers to 240 over the past one year.

But more growth is needed. “We have made good progress but considering that there are 110,000 certified testers worldwide, we have a long way to go before we can be considered as having a respectable software-testing services community,” said MSTB president Mastura Abu Samah.

A recent survey conducted by market researcher Ovum shows that the global computer software and systems testing services market is expected to grow from US$13bil (RM46bil) this year to US$56bil (RM201bil) by 2013.”
