We exist in a world that heavily relies on computers, the Internet and other technology. Because of how much we rely on technology for our daily work, the demand for those who understand it and can adequately use it has risen tremendously in the past few years! Here are a few careers that are perfect for those earning a Bachelor of Science in Computer Science:

Cloud Architect

The “cloud” is digital storage. Companies have so much data that they need to collect and keep safe that they need people who are capable of organizing and architecting it! A cloud architect is responsible for going through a company’s data and information and designing ways to store it all. This role essentially structures the entire digital data library for the company!

Web Developer

Every website on the Internet was designed by someone – and that someone was likely a web developer! Web developers design webpages, web programs and web content for businesses and people to use. A developer is usually a jack-of-all-trades when it comes to developing these pages and programs because of the many factors that must be considered when designing for the web. Web developers know how to design pages that are user-friendly and easy for the average person to navigate.

Mobile App Developer

Smartphones are just as prominent in today’s day and age as car keys or a wallet. Because of this, there is a constant demand for new applications and ideas to enhance these devices! A mobile app developer designs and codes different applications and programs for smartphones of all kinds. This type of developer has the opportunity to either work independently, coming up with app ideas by themselves, or for a company, creating apps on their behalf.

IT Consultant

Almost every company in the world uses some kind of technology in their workplace. Many companies rely heavily on the use of electronic devices to conduct their business, which is why there is a need for IT consultants.
