 Q  I am interested in Computer Science and I want to become a software engineer. I’m confused whether to take Science with CS or commerce with CS. What do I have to do to become a software engineer? Which degrees are important for this field?

 A  To become a software engineer, you should go for BE/ BTech (Computer Engineering) for which eligibility is 10+2, with Physics, Chemistry, Mathematics. You may also go for MCA (Masters in Computer Applications) for which graduation with mathematics as one of the subjects at 10+2 level is the requirement.
