How is software engineering changing the world?

Software engineering is an exciting field if you love innovation and see technology continue to change the world. Subthemes like Embedded Software Engineering Services have improved and impacted so many lives lately.

Software engineering basically uses engineering principles combined with computer science knowledge to create programs that can solve many problems and create almost anything.

Some industries are impacted more by software engineering than others, but below are some of the biggest impacts and examples I could find. The list is also not in any particular order and these are just a few random examples. It’s pretty hard to name all the ways that software engineering has impacted the world.


I can’t even begin to name all the ways that software engineering has impacted the business world. If I had to do that, we would be here for a while. But below is a nice little example for you.

Software engineering, for example, is fully operational, with employees clocking in and out of work and tracking their hours. In the days before software engineering, the method of using pen and paper just wasn’t as efficient. Who knows how precise it was? We are now completely safe to track things like hours worked.

There are other important things that software engineering has had an impact on in the business world, but I’ll leave it to your imagination!

Defense and Military

How do you think an army can launch a missile from a distant location to another distant location? Software engineering is certainly involved in this process.

Also, without advancements in software engineering, we wouldn’t have drones of any kind. Drones continue to level up and become more sophisticated due to advancements in the field. Most of the things that have to do with defense and satellites involve a lot of software engineering and innovation.

It’s quite interesting how software engineering made defense and the military so advanced. What will be even more interesting and frightening is how much it will advance in the next decade because at the current rate it is alarming!


In an industry as sophisticated as airline tickets, there is a huge need for progress in software engineering. The air traffic industry has used this technology to become more efficient and that is why travel across the country has improved so much in a short period of time.

It’s great to see how all of these advancements have improved industries like the ones listed above. Other industries like health and education have seen massive improvements over the past ten or two years. The impact of this technology will continue to thrive and improve the daily lives of those affected.

Comment below on all the ways you can show how software engineering has improved one of the world’s leading industries!
