From creating smartphone apps to developing large-scale software that powers business and industry, computer scientists use their technical and creative skills to improve people’s lives in almost every area imaginable. The systems created by computer scientists impact all aspects of society and influence or transform work done in medicine, education, music, travel, and business.
As a computer scientist, you could develop video games or improve health care by developing electronic medical equipment. You might produce animation for the movie industry, invent a new hand-held device, or develop software to manage an air traffic control tower. Many computer science students found their own tech start-up companies and chart their own path after graduation.
