Now let's go through some of the main reasons why you should pursue such a career.

1. You get to create useful products.
Any specialist from any field of expertise that creates something used by many can tell you that seeing his end product put to work and aiding people gives you a great feeling of fulfillment and joy. It is no different for software engineers and developers that come up with innovative ideas.

However, your product or technology has the potential of being used by a huge number of people which automatically translates into great professional and financial satisfaction for you.

2. You will never get bored
Working as a software engineer is like having to solve a puzzle every time you go to work, and we all know how much we loved puzzles when we were kids. There is really no chance of boredom because you will have to make use of your analytical skills most of the time, which can be very challenging but also very rewarding.

Monotonous work is the main ingredient of a job that you will eventually start to hate. A high percentage of people in the current workforce can attest this. However, if you are working in the IT environment you will always have your limits tested which is the best way to ensure evolution.

3. The demand will always be high

Society will always be in need of engineers to come up with new technologies or to find viable solutions for existing problems. Aside from this, an engineering degree will offer you a wide range of working environments to choose from.

Here are some of the fields of work where the technological skills of an IT engineer are in high demand: education, medicine, business, healthcare and environmental protection.

4. Respect
Engineers are highly respected individuals all over the world. By working in this field and being a respected member of society you will get the chance to meet and work with many interesting individuals throughout your career. Also, by networking with other highly trained specialists you will benefit from many opportunities for advancement throughout your career and your skills will improve continuously.

5. Engineering is Fun
Working in this environment can be a lot of fun because you get to be creative and use cool technology all the time. Moreover, you will be the first of your friends to test out new cool devices and work with innovative technologies.

Also, if you like to travel and discover new places, the IT environment is perfect for this. Let's face it, computers are everywhere on this planet and if you know your way around one you will be able to find a decent job anywhere you go because your skills are universal.
