            Is Computer Science for Me?

            Career Overview

            As a computer scientist, you might develop software or hardware, conduct research or perform other functions related to the use of computer information and technology. Your responsibilities may also include evaluating and solving computer-related conceptual and technical problems. Computer scientists usually work in offices or test centers. Some may hold positions as control system computer scientists or programmer analysts.

            Employment and Salary Information

            According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), employment of computer and information research scientists was expected to increase by 15% nationwide, or faster than average, between 2012 and 2022. The need for cybersecurity and data mining specialists, as well as the use of advanced robotics, will have a positive impact on job growth. Candidates with a Doctor of Philosophy (Ph.D.) degree or knowledge of a secondary field, such as finance, may have the advantage in the job market. In May 2013, computer and information research scientists earned an average annual salary of $109,260, noted the BLS (www.bls.gov).
