Finance. Food production. Aerospace. Transportation. Entertainment. Even athletics. The work of computer scientists is essential to virtually every human endeavor. Organizations from Microsoft and Apple to the U. S. Government are seeking programming whizzes, software gurus, and information architects to create even better, faster, smarter technologies.
Real World Computing
If you think life as a "computer scientist" means all programming-all-the-time, think again. Computer scientists are more likely involved in requirements and specification analysis, and in design and planning of software solutions to complex problems than in "writing code." Bioinformatics plays a central role in understanding genetic encodings and exploiting this knowledge to improve the health and well-being of a global population.
