This question already has an answer here:
I was just offered my very first job, it's a new small to medium size company. It has a startup culture and very flexible. Graduated from a German Uni with a masters in CS. My offer is from a German company and in the contract it's written that the title is a
Softwareentwickler or a software developer. However, I would like to write in my CV that my title is a software engineer.
1- Is there any difference between those titles in Germany? Because I heard that it's the same thing.
2- What title would be nicer, fancier or recommended to have on a resume, a software engineer or a software developer? In Germany and the US in particular.
Edit: my question is with respect to Germany and not the US.
First of all, there is a protection to the professional title 'Ingenieur'='Engineer' by laws of German federal states which can only obtained by successful graduation in an engineering discipline or nat. science.
Well I have a bachelor in CS and M.Sc. in CS.
