Despite economic woes during the past few years, the technology sector
has remained resilient. In fact, the computer science field has experienced
remarkable job growth that is expected to continue to climb. Given this
promising future in the tech sector, you may wish to consider enrolling in a
graduate program to obtain a Master of Science in computer science or a similar degree.
You can begin applying the skills and knowledge gained from your college
courses to your career.
Given the recent economic downturn and its slow recovery, one might be
satisfied in choosing a career that is projected to grow at an average
pace. However, if you enroll in a graduate program for a computer science
degree, you can expect to enter into a job market that is projected to
grow much faster than the average. In fact,
according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the computer and information research fields are expected to grow 15
percent through at least 2022. An 18-percent increase is projected for
that same time period for all computer-related occupations.
If you’re considering a graduate degree in computer science, you
may already have an idea of the type of job you’re looking for.
With this versatile degree, you could choose to become a software developer,
database administrator, or computer hardware engineer. Or, perhaps being
a computer systems analyst, computer network architect, or Web developer
appeals to you. Over the next few years, it is expected that the tech
areas that may enjoy the most robust growth include cybersecurity, data
mining, and robotics.
