Why Should You Choose Computer Science Engineering As Your Graduation degree?

Computer science engineering is the study of theoretical and practical applications of computers in which the principles of mathematics, engineering, software, hardware etc. are applied. This field has revolutionized the growth of society since the late 1990s and will continue to impact the world in the coming decades due to its technological advancements.

It’s a fast-moving and always evolving field and has brought along a sea of job opportunities leading to a surge in demand for computer science professionals. It plays a significant role in almost every field such as banking, finance, health, security, languages, linguistics and almost every field that you can think of! Pursuing computer science at the graduation level strengthens any students’ career options and makes a student highly sought after by the IT industry and helps him/her to land into the role of System Engineer, System Analyst, Data Scientist, Data Analyst, Software Programmer, Software Tester or Research Analyst by inculcating the skills to build the future technology. During this pandemic, shift from traditional offline teaching-learning process to online teaching-learning process was observed with the help of online video platforms such as Zoom, Google meet, MS Teams, etc. This wouldn’t have been possible without the great minds of IT graduates who have made the world faster and more connected.

Below are the reasons why one should opt this field:

  1. Universal field with variety of specializations

Computer Science has its applications in various fields such as banking, finance, commerce, digital marketing, health sector etc. These days, specialized courses are also available that target a particular sub field of computer science to enable students to be industry ready. The specializations are commonly found in the area of Artificial Intelligence, Machine Learning, Mobile Application, Networking etc. This makes computer science a versatile field.

  1. Plethora of offshore job opportunities

There is high demand for computer professionals in this digital era due to the continuous evolution of this field and rising of the era of data analytics, machine learning, big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence. These opportunities are not only limited to India but also have a global outreach.
