Supermarket checkout systems, navigation devices in motor vehicles, MP3 players, cell phones, Internet video platforms, etc. — all of these products are based on software and information technologies (IT) created and developed by computer scientists. Being a “graduated” computer scientist opens up a wide range of diverse fields for your professional career. Take a closer look here for a few examples of where our graduates are pursuing their professions today.
According to BITKOM’s (Federal Association for Information Technology, Telecommunications and New Media, e.V.) Industry Barometer 2/2008, there is still a deficit of qualified employees in high-tech fields. As BITKOM President, Prof. August Wilhelm Scheer, states, “the demand for information and communication technology […] is still high”. This means that in today’s job market, computer scientists are being sought everywhere and still have ideal opportunities for starting a career!
Even if you do not exactly know what specific area you want to start in, we would like to show you some examples of possible professional fields. Take a closer look to get an idea of what computer scientists are doing in their professions and what awaits you after you finish your studies.
