From Math to Programming

by /u/tomriddle · 2 votes · 1 month ago

I am currently studying a bachelor's in applied Mathematics can I still apply for software engineering jobs?

Thanks in advance

You can, but software engineer is probably the most competitive position in the computer science field. Some places will consider it a related discipline, though, you will need a pretty sturdy background in coding if you are trying to get on at somewhere such as Google, Microsoft, Apple, etc. If you aren't particularly choosy, you could probably find somewhere willing to teach you, but it's probably best to have as much experience writing software to broaden your opportunities.

If available, choose as many Computer Science courses that overlap with the Applied Mathematics curriculum and possibly consider a coding boot camp towards the end of your degree or shortly after finishing.

Hope this helps.

Are you taking programming classes along with your core studies?

We have some classes in C and C++ and data structures Programming but I am studying programming by myself overall

Yes you definitely can. I've worked in software engineering and security but studied Applied Math. So long as you can demonstrate you know how to code they don't care IME.
