Job Overview

Who tells computers what to do? You do, as a Computer Programmer / Coder.

Basically, Programmers convert software programs that are designed by software engineers into instructions that computers can follow. Programmers also create, adapt, modify, maintain and trouble-shoot programs. Without Programmers, today’s sophisticated computer systems would be unable to function.

Educational requirements vary. In most cases, employers require a bachelor’s or master’s degree. However, programmers with relevant work experience may only need a certificate or associate degree.

If you have an aptitude for computers, this may be the ideal career for you. Learn more about training resources available in Mississippi today.
