  • Questions about software engineering.

    I have my BS in Industrial Engineering, but am becoming interested in software engineering and considering going into it for a masters program. However, I know next to nothing about coding. How much of a problem will that be for me?

    Thanks in advance!

    If you are going into a Master's program, I would think knowing "next to nothing about coding" would be a big issue! There is a chance that you may have to demonstrate some of your knowledge before being accepted onto the program.

    I would start by learning a couple of languages, at least give yourself a basic knowledge. As you said you are interested in software engineering. I would try to learn C++ or Java.

      I don't think you will face much problem. You could do one thig you can take course of duration 1or 2 month and learn some of the programming languages.That's more than enough and can go for masters.

        Agreed. Trying to get a masters in something you have no practical experience in isn't a good idea. Get some languages under your belt, than you'll have even more fun in your Masters course.

          Hiii!!
          You are coming from BS background so You will be faced some problems at starting time. But no need to worry about it, you can learn programming from scratch because lots of resources are available on internet at free of cost to learn programming.
          Now, If you want to go for master in Software engineering then first learn from C language because C contains basic concepts of any programming languages. so it's concepts will help you to clear your logic. Then start from C++ and JAVA to learn OOPs concepts. Because learning Oops(Object oriented Programmings) is necessary to understanding of programming.
          This Three languages will help you to clear your basics about programming and then you will have to choose further languages according to your master's syllabus and your interest for which language you want to pursue your Master's degree.

          Here i add some links to learn C, C++ & JAVA which is the famous tutorials site. Also, Search about this languages on youtube, you will get idea about these languages.

            Hi, going for a master’s is a good idea, but as you mentioned you are not aware of programming so I would recommend going for some online course. May be data science course, it will help you learn to code and grow your career as well also it will save some time.

            There are many courses available, I would recommend one, check some reviews and go through their curriculum and if you have a good instinct about it then go for it. Here is the link: https://www.scaler.com/data-science-course/

              for your masters, you need to know to code since your base would be based on it, and it would be difficult for you to understand the topics. since they won't talk about the basics and just dig deep in the topic

                For many companies, portfolios and practical experience are important. They do not pay much attention to the presence of a diploma. I know dozens of cool specialists who work outside their profession. So try to gain practical experience and then all doors will open for you. There are thousands of companies that want to see thoughtful people, not a diploma - https://www.metam.tech/
