  • Why study computer science? — Department of Mathematics and Computer Science
    in that exciting endeavor and service to humanity Computer systems analysts database administrators and computer scientists are expected to be among the fastest growing occupations through 2012 The middle 50 percent of software engineers earned between 58 500 and 91 160 U S Dept of Labor Now for practicalities Computer science graduates are some of the most sought after graduates and earn among the highest salaries right out of college So while the news talks about how some of the routine jobs have gone off shore there is still ample opportunity for talented computer science majors What also is valued by our graduates employers is all the problem solving skills and analytical abilities they developed in studying computer science These skills also prove valuable to many areas of endeavor and in fact a significant number of our CS graduates bring those skills to medical school or other professional schools Growing Fields Related to Computer Science Security Analysis Face recognition email patterns finding odd behavior in a crowd breaking codes issues that would be addressed by a computer scientist interested in security One of our graduates just got a full scholarship and a very nice stipend to study this area in graduate school Bioinformatics A good field for someone with an additional interest in biology or chemistry Analyzing gene sequence data to search disease markers for example requires sophisticated computer algorithms large databases and massive computer power One of our graduates recently landed a job working with the Washington University Humane Genome project program Game Programming Games have surpassed movies in income production One of our faculty has been involved in commercial game production and brings that expertise to his software engineering course where there is a semester long group project developing a game Recently a friend of his who is
