What is computer science all about?

The most pursued technical branch currently in India is a bachelor degree in computer science or Computer Science & Engineering. The birth of 21st century saw a technical boom in the field of computer science. It created an interest among the Indian students to choose computer science as a career. Previously the seats in colleges were left unfilled in this particular branch where other core branches like mechanical, civil, electrical etc. were treated royal branches. But in present scenario CSE has got the fastest seat filling branch and mostly preferred by the top rankers. So what has led to such a hike in the liking for this branch? Are the students pursuing this study eligible enough? How to know that you are eligible for it? How to make yourself eligible?

 

Here eligibility doesn’t refer to cracking an interview or scoring 9.0+ CGPA. After all, these floating type values cannot mark your intelligence nor can judge your talent. Students getting admission into govt. colleges like IIT and state funded top colleges, as well as some top institutions, are undoubted to be talented and studious.

 

But there are students who are average and unaware of choosing cse branch.

What is computer science all about?

Computer science is not all about coding in some high-level language and performing some given task to satisfy customers. It is all about developing concepts. All one has to do is develop some algorithms and when it comes to development, we need is maths. Maths is the gene for every activity in this universe. When we are given to develop a solution or develop a system we need to track its activity and make it work for future actions. This can be done by performing mathematical implementations only.

What do most people think about s/w engineers?

People think that if a person is s/w engineer, he can solve all pc related issues and is smart enough to answer all tricky questions related to subjects. But the truth is all s/w developing engineers and senior developers don’t bother about this stuffs.

They design and develop new techniques to solve various ways to implement a solution to particular problems. The design is one of the most important phases that a senior has to do so that colleagues and staffs could work on it.

How to make yourself a master in computer science?

It is always a hot topic that engineers should focus mostly on practicals instead of the theory. But people forget that practicals are implementations of theory. If one is unaware of the history, current architecture, algos and data structures behind any system then how can he develop an optimal solution. This can be only found in theories and books. You cannot start implementation directly and then know the abstract features of a system.

So the first step towards a development is knowing the theory, architecture, and structure that can be used. All those people who are now a developer or scientist or inventors are strong at their base. They know the past, they work on the present and build the future. The most important pillar that can make you a master in computer science is by making yourself a master in maths. If you feel you are not strong enough in maths and predictions then it’s better you start building your base now onwards.

This article wants to convey the readers and CSE aspirants the necessity of theory and mathematics in the field of computer science. If you are currently a student or an aspirant to study CSE, you better get ready to buiyouryou concepts in maths and electronics too if you are interested in the field of development.

    I’m not a computer person beyond what I do online, but I have a lot of friends that went into computer science. I don’t think it’s something that was ever right for me, but they all love it!

    My friend has a job with a large financial institution where she determines the needs of the company and then puts in requests for the software to be designed. She has a great team of computer science engineers working with her.

      just imagine how fascinating it must be to build products
      like a voice recognition and synthesizer for differently abled people

    It’s really amazing what goes into computer science. I think many people think coding and nothing else but there’s a lot of development and complexities that goes in this discipline.

      yes
      the cs world doesn’t move around coding only
      you can code when you have a concept
      in order to build concepts you need is mathematical tools
