You might want to hear from one of our successful alumni, Chris King. He will be speaking on Monday evening, 5:30PM, February 21st, at an event called "Midnight Innovation - Celebrating Engineering, Computing, and Entrepreneurship" as part of our Engineer's Week celebrations. Mr. King, along with his partner Michael Sechrest, have been described as the classic innovator in video gaming, and more recently Avatar-like visual effects (see here).

Below are some quotes from our (Computer majors) students who attended the SET Fair.
"...I learned that computer scientists and engineers are essential to most other career choices."
"There was one thing that really stuck out in my mind before I even arrived at the fair: thank God I am in Computer Science. As I scanned the list of employers and what majors I was looking to hire, I noticed that nearly all of them were hiring majors that related somehow to computers."
These terms simply reflect that traditional science, engineering, technology distinction we see in all fields. That is:
|Biology (human)||Medical Doctor||Medical Technologist, X-Ray Technician, Nurse|
|Physics (electrical)||Electrical Engineer||Electrician|
|Phyics (materials, mechanical)||Civil Engineer||General Contractor, Construction Worker|
|Chemistry||Chemical Engineer||Factory worker at a chemical plant|
|Computer Science||Software Engineer||Information Technology worker, network admin, computer admin|
I came across the paper below on this reddit thread. If you are considering a career in computers, please read this honest and realistic account of what that might be like and how it might compare with the other alternatives.
