A Career In Computer Science Engineering

What is computer science engineering?

The underlying goal of computer science engineering is to develop better computing solutions for practical problems. This can come about either in the form of making new products, or theoretical developments that provide the basis for newer classes of solutions, better hardware, etc. Almost every computer system falls under the purview of computer science engineering, be it network applications, social media platforms, knowledge management systems, collaboration software, system software, embedded software, etc.

How to become a computer science engineer

To be a computer science engineer, you have to either choose to earn a diploma certificate or a degree course. While a diploma takes three years, the degree course will take four years. After this you can earn a B.E./B.Tech. or diploma in computer science.

You can also earn a master's degree upon completing the degree course. Also, you can take up a degree course after earning a diploma.


To earn a diploma you have to first pass your 10th class with a 50 % aggregate in compulsory subjects like math, physics and chemistry. If you want to pursue a degree in computer science, then you have to score 50% aggregate in your 12th class and the mandatory subjects are physics, chemistry and math. Those who want to pursue computer science engineering should focus on these subjects so that they get the best score needed to enroll in colleges of choice.

Academic program

The degree course in computer science engineering comprises eight semesters, while the diploma has a total of six semesters. The syllabus comprises various subjects related to computer software, hardware and its application. The main subjects are database systems, computer architecture and organization, electronics, networking, operating systems, E-commerce and ERP and multimedia applications, foundations of computer systems, programming, and website design.

You can also go for advanced courses with a specialization field.


Computer science has become the top preference of most engineering aspirants; consequently, several reputed engineering colleges are offering these courses. Some of the well known colleges in India offering computer science courses include the IITs, the IIITs, various NITs, BITS, Visvesvaraya National Institute of Technology, Thapar University, Manipal Institute of Technology, Karnataka, Nirma University - Institute of Technology, Veermata Jijabai Technological Institute, and others.

Scope and career

You can work in database management, telecommunication sector, IT field, computer hardware and software implementation and maintenance, gaming, web designing, embedded systems, multimedia, and in various other industries that need computer application. An important fact to note is that now a days, every field and every industry needs computers in their field, which is why computer engineers are always in demand.

The scope is vast and India is the best place to be although there are plenty of jobs to be found abroad and have a much better remuneration. The computer science graduate has good opportunities in the hardware sector and the software sector.

You can work for companies or start your own company in hardware or software. Besides, teaching is also a good option. Some prefer government jobs as there are quite a few options in the government sectors too.
