Software engineer vs programmer

Posted 06 October 2013 - 11:26 PM

Sorry if this is a stupid question, but what exactly is the difference a software engineer and a programmer? Is the software developers job to create the "blue prints" of a program, while the programmer just figures out a way to code it?
