Engineering and Programming

These career fields of Computer Science are related to designing, creating, and programming computers and computer systems. They normally require a 4-year University degree (Bachelor of Science) and possibly more. Courses include lots of math, science, computers, and engineering. Jobs generally start in the $60,00+ range and go up from there. The big tech companies (Google, Apple, Microsoft, Dell, Facebook, Amazon, IBM, etc.) not to mention any other industry that relies on computers (which is most companies) employ these people. With computers everywhere and the Internet of Things just starting, there will be no shortage of these jobs in the near future. 

Jobs related to Computer Science degrees include:

  • Software Engineer and Developer
  • Cybersecurity
  • Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning
  • Data Scientist
  • Cloud Computing
  • Mobile Applications
  • Internet of Things
