in thread Software engineering: a useless profession?

A software engineer's job is to create brilliant and exciting ways for computers to do stupid boring stuff.

I hope you realize I'm not really serious. This comment comes from one of the most astonishing comments from an architecture professor when I was in school. I had complained that the design he had drawn on the board was physically impossible to build with the technolgy of the day. His response was that it was an architect's job to make interesting problems for engineers. Can you believe it!

    First of All Software Engineering is not an Useless Job! But Most of The Idiotic Youths are Going Towards Software Engineering, Where They are Thinking That The Software Engineering is a Part of Their Prestige. Well if More and More Youths are Going Towards Software That Will Be The Impact of Computer Industry in Terms of Hardware, Networking and Security
