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:

  • Software Programmer
  • Software Engineer
  • Web Developer
  • Program Leader
  • Researcher
  • Professor
  • Analyst
  • Aviation and automotive industries
  • Defense industry
  • Internet and networking companies

Cedarville University equips Computer Science students to be prepared for the working environment by giving them a well-rounded education of the field.
