The Current age is truly a computer science era
The educational facilities are enhancing by the increasing awareness among the people. The most prominent development in the field of education is the emergence of ICT in academics. as compared to the last decade, Computer science has become the most prominent discipline of this era. Although, I totally disagree that students should only follow trends, that if everyone is taking computer science so you should also do the same. But it is also a sign that the scope of this area of study has improved; so, the subject should be chosen on good reasons.
Here I will try to share some of the justifications; why one should choose Computer Science as his major, or in other words, what may be the good reasons, as mentioned above.
ICT has been involved in all walks of life:
Today, all the areas of study are now connected to computer science. Not only the academics, computer usage has been increased in all the fields; thus, this era is best known as the digital age. This has immensely increased the need of computer experts and the shortfall is filling through increased No. of computer science students. We can see that every field involves software engineering as there are consistent developments in software development. New soft wares and applications are being created on daily basis.
Best professional scope after studies
According to research studies, computer science is the only area of study, which has the highest employability rate soon after education. Since these students are well trained during their education, that is why, these students are picked up by different companies in the ending phase of their education. There are several examples of the students from various renowned universities who got their appointment letters before their passing out convocations.
Better financial prospects
The earning level of the computer scientists is far above than the rest of the graduates, either in the jobs, or doing the paid assignments, they can earn a lot more money than general subjects. An expert can easily get an offer of a high amount for a single project.
Wider scope of work
Since computer specialists are highly in demand in all fields of life, they have an opportunity to work in a diverse range of fields. However, they have to widen their choice of learning to integrate their basic skills with the new field of work.
Widest scope of geographic coverage
Skill and technical knowledge can never be failed due to geographic limitations; this field of study cannot fail in any part of the world. Computer experts can survive anywhere in the world, and can prove their ability in any type of the task in their field. Through this field, they also have an opportunity to get an exposure to different people, visit different countries and experience different cultures in the world. There are several examples of the computer expert who are providing remote services to the overseas clients and are successfully earning higher amount than the national employment opportunities.
Higher education opportunities outside the country
The global advantage of this area of study is also visible in the academics all over the world. The graduates in computer sciences have vast variety of academic institutes to choose from if they want to go abroad for higher education. This may even polish their skills and enhance their expertise; since their basic skill is complemented by knowledge of latest technology and the best practices in other countries.
All of these reasons justify computer science to be the best discipline in the current era, however one must choose the subjects according to his aptitude.
