Critical thinking which is the ability to use reason and logic this is very important in this field as it is whether yes or no for any give problem in IT branch. Decision making again a skill very useful and needed as a good software engineer. To succeed as a software engineer any computer science student need to have more than a basic mathematical skill as this is vital. Mathematic could be considered as the ability to use, manipulate and control structure , quantity, numbers, geometry, arithmetic, algebra, numeracy, in general it is logical thinking. Thus no, computer science without a mathematic. Another basic skill is time management, managing and planning our proper time as well as others people’s time to increase productivity and efficiency to spend a specific amount of time on a given activities. Prioritise and make good judgment And last, software engineering is about programming, to finish a degree in computer science and in order to become a software engineer, students must have a good control of programming languages, this is the ability to design and write a computer program, computer instructions for several purposes, using variety of development environment and…show more content…
As the field is more technical, scientific and non-theoretical.
Therefore to be positive the area requires more effort and a real critical thinking, regular exercise to develop the skills, lot of effort on reading and learning to improve the knowledge, develop our intellect and shape our personality.
