UTEP

Computer Programming

The university Of Texas At El Paso(UTEP) was founded in 1914. UTEP has major programs that they are known for such as Engineering. UTEP is located in the west side of El Paso Texas. the school colors are navy blue and orange

College life UTEP has a  casual life when it comes to the campus but they do have their crazy traditions such as minerpalooza which is basically a big party that happens just before homecoming. UTEP offers restaurants on campus such as chick-fil-a, and pizza hut. They also have little traditions such as orange Fridays where they wear orange UTEP shirts and jerseys.

The reason the i chose the career computer programming is because i have always enjoyed working with electronic devices. Computer programmers get an average annual salary of $70,000 a year. Most computer programmers work in office buildings or at home. the reason for that is because computer programming can be done anywhere. The job of a computer programmer is to write coding for devices or for computer programs. some examples of that is creating a specific application or a program for a computer or a cellphone.

The education for becoming a computer programmer isn't very difficult. In fact most employers hire computer programmers that either have a bachelors degree or an associates degree in computer science. computer programmers also have to learn certain computer languages. My goal is to go to UTEP for a bachelors degree in computer science.

The annual salary of a computer programmer is from 40,000 to 110,000. Computer programmers get paid hourly, the entry wage is 28.40 and the experienced wage is 46.11.

What personal characteristics are required for someone to be successful in your job?

A computer programmer must be analytical. The job involves taking a problem and dividing it into smaller pieces that can be solved independently and then brought back together to complete an assignment.

What are the biggest challenges in your job?

Writing documentation is the biggest challenge for me. After learning all of a customer’s requirements, they must be written up in a document for review. Then, the document might have to be rewritten to fit better with what the customer wants. Unfortunately, when learning about customer requirements, miscommunication is always a possibility.
