Computer Science is one of the most highly motivating and financially successful disciplines available today. It is a challenging field, constantly growing within itself, as well as expanding into other disciplines. Increase in technology and demand creates opportunities for employment in a variety of settings, such as government, corporations and businesses of all sizes, and universities. A finite list of career options in Computer Science is virtually impossible because the profession is continuously changing.
One area of Computer Science includes Engineering and Scientific Research and Development. This side of the discipline requires a more technical, theoretical, and mathematical background and provides jobs such as:
- Software Engineering
- Software Development
- Communications Systems
- Operating System Development
Another area of Computer Science, Business Information Systems, involves working for a company that is not necessarily in the computer business. It is related to in-house development and management of software systems for business operations, forecasting, marketing, accounting, personnel, and payroll, and may include jobs like these:
