Computing professionals might find themselves in a variety of environments in academia, research, industry, government, private and business organizations — analyzing problems for solutions, formulating and testing, using advanced communications or multi-media equipment, or working in teams for product development. Here’s a short list of research and vocational areas in computing.
- Artificial Intelligence — Develop computers that simulate human learning and reasoning ability.
- Computer Design and Engineering — Design new computer circuits, microchips, and other electronic components.
- Computer Architecture — Design new computer instruction sets, and combine electronic or optical components to provide powerful but cost-effective computing.
- Information Technology — Develop and manage information systems that support a business or organization.
- Software Engineering — Develop methods for the production of software systems on time, within budget, and with few or no defects.
- Computer Theory — Investigate the fundamental theories of how computers solve problems, and apply the results to other areas of computer science.
- Operating Systems and Networks — Develop the basic software computers use to supervise themselves or to communicate with other computers.
- Software Applications — Apply computing and technology to solving problems outside the computer field – in education or medicine, for example.
