In this era of modern technology, we are surrounded by the world of computers.  But the questions is what is the Future in Computer Science? From our pockets to our desks and from our industries to our homes, computers have become an essential part of our life. Life is simply impossible without computer science.

IMPORTANCE OF COMPUTERS / SOFTWARES 

EVERYBODY IN THIS COUNTRY SHOULD LEARN HOW TO PROGRAM A COMPUTER…. BECAUSE IT TEACHES YOU HOW TO THINK.

We just can’t deny their importance in anyway. In the past 10 years, technology had a great impact on our workplaces and homes, and in the next 10 years, influences of the technology will be greatly accelarated.
They have changed how we work, how we live and how we travel.

SOFTWARE ENGINEERING AS A CAREER

This field has a a great scope in today’s world market as well as in future. Demand of professionals in this field has never went down in past few years infact it has been increasing rapidly but if we consider future deamnd you will be surprised that according to statistics computer scientists, data scientists and programmers will be higher in demand then ever before. Computer science or software engineering is all about creativity. Therefore, if a person have skills, this field will never let his skills to go wasted.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the salary of computer applications software developers was $90,000 and that of computer systems software developers was $96,600 annualy, in 2011, approximately. In 2017, it is $100,000 approximately. From here we can predict the scope, market demand and earnings of software engineers.

Moreover, software engineering is not as tedious as other engineerings. It is always full of excitement, pleasures and creativity. Software engineering is really a rewaring path. You are Passionate and you have an Idea Boom!!! that’s it you will be famous and you will get your rewards. Especially IT field is highly rewarding in financial terms. This is why IT companies are in top rankings of rapidly progressing companies.

FUTURE OF COMPUTER SCIENCE / SOFTWARE ENGINEERING

Keeping future in view, I must say that the brightest future is of Software engineers (IT professionals or related to this field). The progress and development made in the computer science till now is not more than 30% of the total. The progress of this field has just begun. A world of inventions and alot of achievements are waiting for us in future.

JOB OPPORTUNITIES 

As you can see statistics above there is a treasure of job opportunities out there for Software or computer engineers. Software engineers don’t need to much worry about their jobs because there are millions of job opportunities for them. You can guess it through the following graph:

Work from Home

Thousands of software engineers and IT professionals are owining their own businesses. This is the beauty of this field. You don’t have to work necessarily for a comapany. You can be your own boss.
Thousands of people work from their home, making personel websites, hyip webs, completing projects, working for cyber security from home. They are earning their living from their homes.

This is the point I like the most about this field. Opportunity to set your own business is big and believe me nothing is better then being your own boss, working from home and work according to your comfort.

Degrees are not Necessary

Another amazing point about this field, you don’t need to have a degree to get a job or work from home. You can work without a degree. Though having a degree is amazing and helps you in getting projects and jobs but it is not a necessary.

There are many examples where people without even a degree in computer science got high paying jobs and got their own businesses set and you don’t have to look far mate. Bill Gates and Mark Zuckerberg, Steve jobs and Jack Dorsey all of them dropped out of college and set their own businesses in this field without a degree. Many people get high paying jobs in Tech Giants with their skill. I don’t find anyother field to provide such wide range of opportunities.

CONCLUSION

We must conclude that no career is better than that of software engineering. Now decission is yours and best of luck for it.
