When a computer science degree becomes a credential, it means you’re no longer confined to the confines of your home office.
It means you can go to a university, or a state college, or the University of Minnesota, and the whole world can know that you’re a computer scientist.
The same goes for other fields of study, like engineering and medicine.
The more computer science courses that become part of your college curriculum, the more the field of science becomes a natural fit for a career in engineering.
And that’s exactly what’s happening.
“It’s a very interesting time in the computer science field,” said Robert Schoener, who has been studying the science for more than 20 years.
“Computer science has exploded in popularity in the last couple of decades.
The average graduate in computer science in the United States is doing two or three computer science majors.”
Schoener is a professor at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign and a director of the Computational Imaging and Computer Science Center.
He says the explosion of computer science degrees has come about thanks to a few factors: universities offering computer science programs, the proliferation of Internet-based classes, and a growing awareness among employers about computer science.
“I think there’s a lot of pressure for people to take computer science, and I think there are a lot people who don’t know much about computers and aren’t aware of the potential,” he said.
And there’s an added layer of pressure when it comes to choosing a major.
While a computer education degree is a strong credential for any career, Schoeder says it’s especially strong for those interested in the job market.
“You’re not just going to be a computer technician or a programmer, you’re going to want to have a background in other fields, so you’re probably going to have to spend a lot time thinking about what other fields are out there,” he explained.
Schoinger believes that the field is primed for a change because the technology and innovation that are taking place in the field are bringing more people into the field.
Computer science is “a rapidly changing field, so there are lots of things to do that have a strong technology component,” he continued.
“If you’re not in the industry, you can’t do all those things.
You’re not going to find a job in the sector where you can do all the things you want to do in the workplace.”
Schow has been taking courses online since she was 12 years old.
She has gone on to complete her master’s degree in computer sciences, and now is working as a consultant and working on a new venture.
She says she is still learning the business side of the field, but it’s making her feel comfortable.
“The biggest thing for me is just being able to learn from people, which I think is really important,” she said.
“We’re always talking about how to do things better, and how to make it more efficient.”
Schowe’s experience shows that the Internet and the Internet of Things are creating a new and more powerful field of study for those with a computer background.
“There’s no shortage of good information online,” she explained.
In a way, you want those resources to be as available as possible so that you can focus on learning, but also that you get as much information as possible.”
