Now that so many of us have computers we tend to take them for granted. We turn them on and expect them to do work perfectly.

But without computer software engineers, we’d be staring at empty screens.

Most of these engineers are driven by an eager desire to learn what makes the box come to life and ideas for expanding the machine’s reach.

Basically, software is to computers what programs are to television.

Software is the content that you look at and interact with on a computer.

With training at career school, college or a manufacturer, these engineers analyse and solve programming problems and create the framework for code writers who write the tiny steps that make up a program.

They may have to work evenings or weekends to meet deadlines or solve unexpected
technical problems.

One of the challenges for computer software engineers is to constantly update their awareness and skills.

It’s essential to have a strong grasp of mathematics and the ability to follow very detailed instructions.Software engineers also need old-fashioned communication skills so they can analyse and meet the needs of today’s computer users as well as
the users of tomorrow.

job description : accountant (comptable)

If you have a knack for numbers you might consider a career as an accountant. Some accountants work for private citizens, helping them file their taxes and giving advice on general financial matters.

Other accountants work for companies, either as outside consultants or as full-time employees.

They handle the company’s financial records, overseeing budgets, payments, expenses and taxes.

There are accountants that work for the government.Some work for the IRS, or Internal Revenue Service, the agency responsible for collecting taxes.

IRS accountants make sure that tax returns are filled out properly. They are specially trained to look for tax fraud. Other government accountants make sure that local state and federal agencies keep accurate records.

Accounting can be tedious work. New computer software is rapidly changing, and opening the door to easier record-keeping.

Accountants should expect to spend most of their time at a desk. A degree in accounting or a related field is necessary for most candidates. Passing the exam to become a CPA, or Certified Public Accountant, will offer better job opportunities, and most states require CPA candidates to complete an additional thirty semester hours beyond the usual bachelor’s degree.

Diligence, integrity, and a good head for numbers are what count in this career.

Since the Wright brothers’ inaugural flight at Kitty Hawk in 1903, aircraft have come a long way.

Aeronautical engineers work on aircraft that operate within the Earth’s atmosphere, while astronautical engineers deal with spacecraft which operate outside the Earth’s atmosphere.

The people who design and develop air and spacecraft, often called aerospace engineers, maybe experts in a variety of disciplines, incuding aerodynamics, propulsion, thermodynamics, structures, acoustics or guidance and control systems.

Since their designs are responsible for the safety of both people and equipment, aeronautical and astronautical engineers must be highly skilled and typically need advanced post-college education and training.

Developing new technologies to compete in the defense private aviation industries can be a challenging job.

These engineers must be able to handle design deadlines and testing failures, while constantly finding innovative solutions in a competitive environment.

To perform these jobs well, you should have a strong sense of curiosity and willingness to constantly learn the latest technologies.

If your imagination is captivated whenever you see a plane fly overhead and you
have an aptitude for problem solving, this may be a rewarding career choice.

job description: aerospace engineering technician

flying to the very edge of the Earth’s atmosphere even to outer space itself is the field of aerospace engineering.

Aerospace engineering and operations technicians help design and develop systems and vehicles for commercial aviation, national defense and space exploration.

They assist engineers and scientists, doing many of the hands-on tasks involved in aerospace production and quality control.

For example technicians assemble and maintain systems that launch, guide and land aircraft and space vehicles.

Technicians often assemble prototypes, in addition, they may develop testing techniques to ensure that the prototypes function properly and meet quality standards.

Precision tools, computers and other highly sophisticated instruments are used. Most work is done indoors in labs, offices or manufacturing sites.

Occasionally, the job requires technicians to work outdoors.

Most employers prefer to hire people with at least a two-year associate degree in engineering technology.

Programs are available at colleges, vocational schools, and through the armed forces.

Additional training comes on the job.

Most technicians work as part of a team, so good communication skills are important as is the ability to handle deadline pressure.

This is a job that demands attention to detail as well as the ability to understand technical manuals and blueprints.

Lives depend upon meticulous and methodical work.

It’s been more than a century since man learned to fly, yet it’s still awe-inspiring to watch a spacecraft take to the skies.

As an aerospace engineering and operation technician, you could be an important part of the ground crew that ensures its safe and successful journey.
