Welcome to CrazyEngineers. There's no such 'difference' between software engineer and a graduate engineering trainee working in IT industry.

Typically, the graduate trainees are put through 3-6 months of training on various technologies that the company works in. This could be Java, .Net, C, C++, Testing Tools, Scripting Languages etc. Once the training is over, the graduate trainees are assigned projects.

Software engineer is a generic name typically used for anyone who works in the software industry. Of course, there are specific designations and identity to different roles.

Software Engineer: Typically works on programming languages, fixes bugs, works on modules assigned by the team lead or project manager and reports to them.

Software QA Engineer: Discovers bugs, gets involved in various stages of the project - right from documentation, requirement gathering to final maintenance of the software and helps keep the quality of the software to desired levels. Reports to team lead or project manager.

IT Sys Admin: Helps maintain infrastructure up to date by solving hardware and software issues. Also looks after the quality of the network - intranet and internet.

...and so on. There are multiple roles. If you wish to discuss about any specific role, let us know. We look forward to your questions, doubts.
