By the definition just given: if you write software, you're a software engineer.

If you want to make the definition more exclusionary than that, you're gonna have to come up with some rules that go beyond anything yet mentioned. And, much like other requirements that are added after the project has begun, they will probably turn out, on examination, to be pretty stupid.
