Hi there,

GetEducated published a great article that I think you'll find useful: How to Become a Computer Software Engineer

80% of computer software engineers hold at least a bachelor’s degree but you can enter this field armed with many types of computer science and IT degrees.

It sounds like your degree may be enough to get you a job as a computer applications software engineer. To bolster your skill set, consider building a few apps yourself to show potential employers.

If you would like a career as a computer systems software engineer, you may need to take a few additional courses depending on the specific job requirements and your past coursework.

If you find you need more education to land the job you want consider these top ranked, affordable computer science online masters degree programs.

I hope this helps!

Best, Kayleigh
