My Bachelors is in Electronics and Communication Engineering (ECE) but after university, I'd like to work purely in the software industry.
Every company that I aspire to work for almost always has this section:
Bachelor’s Degree in Computer Science or related field
For example, here is a screenshot from the Amazon Careers page for a Software Development Engineer role.
- Programming experience with at least one modern language such as Java, C++, or C# including object-oriented design
- Bachelor's Degree in Computer Science of related field.
- 4+ years experience in building successful production software systems.
- Proficiency in at least one modern programming languages such as C, C++, C#, Java
So am I eligible to apply for these companies? Is Electronics and Communication Enginnering (ECE) a "related field" as per most software companies' requirements?
