  11. MEADS

  12. CS Career Paths • First years • CS intensive learning environment • Domain knowledge building • Feel out the profession • A few years in… • Form opinions on ultimate career path • Lean toward job ops aligning with desires

  13. CS Only • Stick to strict software design/programming • No desire for technical or other leadership • Content to work within confines of others’ architectures • ‘factory worker’

  14. Technical Leadership • Architect • Development programs for obvious skill gap • Lead SW engineer • Cost/schedule/technical team leadership • Development programs • Technical director/Eng Prg Mgr/Integrated product team lead • More related to domain expertise than SW engineering skills

  15. Management • Matrix organizations • Program management • Functional (people) management • SW Engineering manager • Career advisement/ employee development • Recruiting/retention • Appraisal/merit responsibilities

  17. A day in the life… • Interface to systems engineering • Algorithm/requirements understanding • Interface to SW Test engineering • System test equipment development • SW test plan/procedure development • Interface to Systems Integration engineering • Advise on integration plans/procedures • Assist in debugging problem reports

  18. Questions?
