‘’A computer would get equal position of that of a human brain if only people would believe it to be a piece of flesh and blood!’’
There have been numerous occasions wherein being an educational counsellor I have had to face queries as to what is the importance of computers in present times and how it would better a student’s career in the long run. Most importantly, as per recent educational surveys, the branch of computer science has shot up in terms of popularity and more and more students are opting for it.
Under such state of affairs, it is best that students are given training in the correct direction so that they can actually know how and in what manner, this subject would influence a particular student’s career.
Presence of computer science in present times:
As a counsellor who has to keep oneself updated with almost every branch of study that is associated with a specific career, I can surely vouch for the fact that, the kind of prospects that computer science is providing in present times has extremely high levels of demand.
Also, with the plethora of career options that are opening up for a computer science degree, I would surely suggest that students who are looking forth towards a career in medical science or corporate world should surely opt for this branch of science.
Compatibility of computer science with modern day career needs:
In one of the recent educational conferences that I had lectured in, I clearly promoted those careers wherein computer science was a necessity. In case you have missed out on that conference, I would discuss in detail here as to what are those factors that make this branch of science compatible to present career demands.
Why don’t you take a look and understand demands of the career and ways in which computer science would help you land the best of opportunities.
- As a computer scientist
With a computer degree if there is one position that could surely provide you with the best career option, it is definitely that of a computer scientist. A couple of days, a young girl had come down to take career counselling from my end. It was quite disheartening to find that though she was quite good in computer science, yet no quite aware of the process in which this passion could be converted to a compatible career option.
I ensured that she got every little detail associated with this career option and traced the path out that she had to follow. This is the most unfortunate aspect that I had to come across. In most of the cases, it so happens that students are not aware of the complications and path that they have to follow to take up a career in computer science. Hence, such prospects remain untouched.
However, I have made it a point to ensure that students get an idea as to prospects that are associated with and how they can make a successful career out of it. The degree in computers and the associated degrees can make great computer scientists, and with their demands increasing on an overall note, it has become one of the most compatible career option sin regards to computer science.
- As graduates
Many computer graduates think that they have no demand as such in the market. However, I would completely negate this fact. As I have seen in regards to recent market trends, computer science graduates are required in a number of fields as engineering, architecture, online tools business and manufacture of online sites.
Most importantly, since students are not quite aware of the details, hence a number of posts are left unfilled. In case you wish to take up or have taken up computer science as a subject, be sure to try out your academic qualifications in the abovementioned fields.
- Opportunities at a global level
With the increase in global mingling, it is important that you check out what opportunities computer science is presenting at the global level. I have seen very many students in my career as a counsellor to take this subject up and get a degree in this field. Finally, they are placed at global levels in very high positions.
Clearly, with time the importance of computer degrees have simply become more compatible with almost every career option that students are choosing out.
- Positions as developers
This is another area that has specifically found importance and I can vouch for the fact that with greater influence of computer science more and more students can find greater opportunity in this field. With the world going the global way, you too can find a great option as acareer.
As a matter of fact, an old student of mine did contact me a couple of days back to give me news of his success as a developer with one of the topmost MNC’s of the world. Hence, this degree surely gives you a great career option.
- Requirement in variety of fields
With computers proliferating at every field, there has become a sudden need for computer students to operate them and ensure that they have the same functionality at every domain. With this increase in demand, naturally,a number of career options in regards to this subject are increasing with every passing day. Hence, as a student who is in dilemma regarding the career options, you can definitely choose out computer science as an option for a compatible career.
