Computer science is a powerful force for making a positive difference in the world. Computer science develops student’s computational and critical thinking skills and enable them to create, not simply use, new technology .This fundamental knowledge is needed to prepare students for the 21st century. Computer Science endeavors various sectors that includes the government, medicine, manufacturing, entertainment industry, business, science, space exploration, engineering and communication . From developing chipsets for wearable technology to managing power grids, computer science is present everywhere. Emerging fields in computer science includes network architecture, big data, computer graphics, cloud computing, nano computing, robotics, quantum computing etc. All these fields would not be able to develop and advance without the use of computer science. As the biggest companies in India are working in software domain therefore Career possibilities are huge for computer science students. All the major surveys in various job sectors shows unprecedented growth in the field of computer science.
it’s no secret that there’s extraordinary competition right now for computer scientists. Both nationally and regionally, new graduates from strong programs at all degree levels are receiving extraordinary offers. According to Bureau of Labour Statistics, across all fields of science, engineering, and the social sciences, more than 60 percent of all newly-created jobs, and more than 50 percent of all available jobs (both newly-created and vacancies), are in computing!
A report on Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM) from the Georgetown University Center on Education and the Workforce forecasts 51 percent of STEM occupations will be computer occupations by 2018.
Nearly 3 out of 4 new job openings and 3 out of 5 total job openings are going to be in computing!
The PSU’s(Public Sector/Government Organizations) that typically hire computer science engineers include Coal India, BPCL, Bharat Electronics Limited (BEL), Indian Oil Corporation (IOCL), Defence Research and Development Organization(DRDO), Oil and Natural Gas Corporation(ONGC), Steel Authority of India Limited (SAIL), Hindustan Aeronautics Limited (HAL), Vizag Steel Plant, ECIL, Heavy Engineering Corporation Limited (HEC), OPGC etc.
