Placement & Career Opportunities / Research Opportunities
It’s natural to perceive a computer science graduate as a programmer with coding skills. Programming is a primary skill that is taught to the students of this department by its star faculties. However, a BCA degree teaches students to solve real-life problems. This can be done not only by working as a programmer but also as a designer, analyst, animator or a game developer. As a company that visits Adamas University to hire students, the following are the career options of students who have completed their computer science engineering courses:
i) Software Engineering:
Most CS graduates work under this title. Software engineers are professionals working to find out complex solutions to a number of applications in different sectors. They are not programmers. A software engineer creates the design that the programmer implements.
ii) Graphic Designing:
Graphic designers have an exciting job at hand, as they get to work on interesting projects, and enjoy flexible work options along with good salaries. Front-end Web Designing is one career path that computer designers can opt for.
iii) Software Testing:
A software testing takes the important responsibility of improving the quality of the application. A Tester or Quality Analyst essentially should have the knowledge of the entire software development life cycle.
iv) Information Security Professional:
Information Security is the dynamic field, not very old, but one of the most important from the future’s perspective. Expansion of knowledge in accordance with the latest industry trends is the most vital aspect of this job.
v) Mobile Application Developer:
Smartphones have become as commonplace as anything can be and with their rising use, there is a growing market of mobile apps. An entry-level professional in this field earns a median salary of INR 353,904 (PayScale). This, being a relatively new field, the growth opportunities are immense.
