FAEs typically work on problems at customers' facilities. A field application engineer is also a broad title. Electrical engineers, software engineers, etc. can all be FAE's.

No. Software engineers apply the engineering design process to software development.

"Field application engineer" is a general term. A field application engineer can be any type of engineer (electrical, software, etc.). FAEs provide technical assistance to customers, helping them develop their own products.

The exact meaning of any job title varies from company to company. However, I think you're safe in assuming a SE is the same as a SAE.
