In today’s world of growing technologies and inventions, computers have made our life easier and faster. Whatever technological developments and inventions are being done today, whether it would be in the field of Electrical (MATLAB), Civil or Mechanical (AutoCAD), are done using Computer Science Engineering. Thus, Computer Science Engineering plays an immense role in shaping the career of a student. Also, a Computer Science Engineer can get job in organizations of any field whether it’s Mechanical, Electrical or Civil apart from his/her own vast field.

After knowing a lot about Computer Science, which is such an awesome field, let us discuss about what Computer Science Engineering is, Career Options after Computer Science Engineering, Public and Private sector jobs in Computer Science and a lot more.



Computer Science Engineering deals with design, implementation and management of Information for both Software and Hardware Processes. A Computer Science Engineer plays following roles for an organization:

  • Developing Software Applications
  • Testing
  • Debugging code
  • Deployment of Software
  • Designing and Modification of a Software Component.

To be a Computer Science Engineer, a student must develop following skills and qualities and should work on them right from his/her college days:

  • Should have knowledge of basic programming languages like C/C++, Core JAVA, HTML, etc.
  • Should develop Problem Solving Skills and Logical Skills
  • As a Computer Science Engineer deals with design of Computational Systems, he/she should have strong mathematical skills




After graduation with Computer Science Engineering, a student can make career in following fields:

  • Database Management System
  • Information Technology (IT) 
  • Artificial Intelligence
  • Embedded Systems
  • IT Security
  • Multimedia
  • Gaming
  • Web Development
  • Software Development

A student can qualify GATE and can get admission in M.E./M.Tech Courses where he/she can do specialization in some of the above fields like Artificial Intelligence, Embedded Systems, etc. If a student doesn’t want to go for higher studies and want an easy going career he/she can go for Web Development and Software Development for which a student can prepare at least one of the following languages PHP, .NET, Java along with HTML, CSS, JavaScript, AJAX, jQuery, etc. to get a comfortable job of Software/Web Developer or Tester.




After qualifying GATE, a Computer Science Engineer can get a package of around 8 lacs per annum or more. Top IT recruiters recruiting computer science graduates are:

  • Google
  • Microsoft
  • IBM
  • Amazon
  • Oracle
  • Tech Mahindra
  • Tata Consultancy Services (TCS)
  • Infosys
  • Wipro
  • HCL
  • Accenture
  • Cognizant

The list is still not at its end. There are many more popular companies which recruit Computer Science Engineers.




Till now, there had been a lot of arguments regarding whether there are government jobs for Computer Science engineers or not. Some say, “There are no government jobs for Computer Science Engineers in this field”. Others say, “There are vast career opportunities in public sector”.

There are good job opportunities in government sector too for a Computer Science Engineer but no doubt the competition is fierce. Various Government Sector Companies offering jobs to a Computer Science Engineers are:

  • Defence Research and Development Organization (DRDO)
  • Central Bureau of Investigation (CBI)
  • Indian Space Research Organization (ISRO)
  • Centre for Development of Advance Computing (CDAC)
  • National Informatics Center (NIC) and many more.
