Here’s why computer science graduates have some of the highest starting salaries
With various innovations and new technologies coming up, there has never been a better outlook for computer science students than today
Ever since the invention of the World Wide Web in 1989, technology has been growing exponentially and has penetrated every aspect of our lives – both personal and professional. In this hyper-connected world, where everything from governmental infrastructure to banking to interpersonal relationships is online, Computer Science graduates are going to be in strong demand in the foreseeable future.
According to a report by Global Market Insights, the worldwide industrial robotics market size is set to exceed $80 billion by 2024. Tech giants such as Facebook, IBM and Google as well as governments are investing heavily in Artificial Intelligence (AI). AI along with Machine Learning will contribute US$ 1 trillion to the Indian economy by 2035.
Companies across the world are making efforts to utilise the enormous datasets they have for personalising and improving their services. The Harvard Business Review, too, labelled ‘Data Science’ as one of the most sought-after jobs in the 21st century. Indian IT firms with delivery centres across the world have well-diversified across verticals such as telecom, retail and banking, financial services and insurance (BFSI). Given that technology is everywhere, data protection is no longer optional, making cybersecurity a fundamental need for the times we are in.
Computer Science graduates, thus, have some of the highest starting salaries and because of the huge demand, they enjoy an abundance of career opportunities. They can choose to be an Application Analyst or a Developer, a Cyber Security or Data analyst, Database administrator, Forensic computer analyst, Game developer, Information systems manager, IT consultant, Software engineer, Systems analyst, UX designer, Web designer or an Application Developer. There has never been a better outlook for computer science students than today.
The country is running at a fast pace to become technologically advanced. With various innovations and new technologies coming up, it becomes important for the students to be prepared for the future. Students looking for a long-term and rewarding career that offers immense possibilities to explore and further flourish should opt for a degree in Computer Science.
