Abstract

Software engineering is one of computer science branches, it comprises of building and developing software systems and applications. Software engineering is a discipline that has a constant growth in research in aim to identify new technologies and adopt it in different areas; there is a considerable investment on software engineering trends at the current time due to the availability of mobile technologies. With millions of billions of smart devices that are connected to the internet, all industries around the world are rapidly becoming a technology driven industries.

Software engineers are aware of programming languages that are employed to develop software systems, by applying engineering principles to development process; they can design customized software systems for individual or organizational customers. The new trends in software engineering are numerous, Cloud Computing, machine learning, deep learning, big Data, mobile Computing. Nevertheless, there are many more other research trends in software engineering's field that have been intensively explored and implemented in many different industries. In this paper, authors try to summarize the most fields that are integrated with software engineering recently.
