What is a computer scientist?
Computer Scientists like solving problems. They enjoy working through the details and complexities of a project and arriving at the best solution. For a computer scientist this is done through software engineering, by using an organized approach to assess the problem, create a design, implement the design, and then reassess the design to ensure all requirements were met.
Computer scientists can work in these capacities and more:

- Aviation and automotive industries
- Defense industry
- Internet and networking companies
