Cell Phone Software Engineers Needed!

By Joe Aguilar

While the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports software engineering is one of the hottest employment sectors these days, that’s just the tip of the iceberg. The need for engineers working on cell phone software and virus protection is fever-pitched.

As of December 2005, there were an estimated two billion cell phone users worldwide. By 2008, estimates should reach three billion. To put that into perspective, Bill Gates estimates there are currently “only” one billion personal computer users worldwide and he has ambitious plans to double that number by 2015.

Cell phones are increasingly merging with computers. They can now run sophisticated software—performing functions like editing and creating business documents. Cell phones are also increasingly prone to crippling viruses, so there’s a strong need for virus protection software to secure personal information. A master’s degree in software engineering can set you apart from others looking to get ahead in the emerging cell phone field.
