Ten big reasons to opt for Computer Science
1. Computer Science is part of everything we do!
Computer Science is part of just about everything that touches our lives from the cars we drive, to the movies we watch, to the ways businesses and governments deal with us. Understanding different dimensions of computing is part of the necessary skill set for an educated person in the 21st century. Whether you want to be a scientist, develop the latest killer application, or just know what it really means when someone says “the computer made a mistake”, studying computer science will provide you with valuable knowledge.
2. Expertise in computing enables you to solve complex, challenging problems.
Computer Science is a discipline that offers rewarding and challenging possibilities for a wide range of people regardless of their range of interests. Computing requires and develops capabilities in solving deep, multidimensional problems requiring imagination and sensitivity to a variety of concerns.
3. Computer Science enables you to make a positive difference in the world.
Computer Science drives innovation in the sciences (human genome project, AIDS vaccine research, environmental monitoring and protection just to mention a few), and also in engineering, business, entertainment and education. If you want to make a positive difference in the world, study computer science.
4. Computer Science offers many types of lucrative careers.
Computer Science jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction. Computer Science is very often associated with innovation, and developments in computing tend to drive it. This, in turn, is the key to national competitiveness. The possibilities for future developments are expected to be even greater than they have been in the past.
5. Computer Science jobs are here to stay, regardless of where you are located.
There actually are more computing jobs than qualified people to fill them. If you consider the expected growth in computer science, it’s easy to see that companies simply need more talent. It would be better to pursue a profession in Computer Science to qualify for the large number of open positions available right now.
6. Expertise in Computer Science helps you even if your primary career choice is something else.
Having a degree in Computer Science will provide you with a foundation of knowledge, problem solving and logical thinking that will serve as a competitive advantage to you in your career, in whatever field you choose.
7. Computer Science offers great opportunities for true creativity and innovativeness.
Creating high-quality computing solutions is a highly creative activity, and computing supports creative work in many other fields. The best solutions in computing exhibit high levels of elegance and beauty.
8. Computer Science has space for both collaborative work and individual effort.
Computer Science is often about being part of a team that requires people with many different kinds of skills. Yet there is also plenty of space for individual flair and imagination.
9. Computer Science is an essential part of well-rounded academic preparation.
An increasing number of universities and employers see successful completion of a Computer Science course as a sign of academic well-roundedness.
10. Future opportunities in Computer Science are without boundaries.
Computer Science is one of those fields where it is almost impossible to predict what will happen next. This is why we cannot even begin to imagine all the ways that you can make a contribution to it and it can make your life’s work exciting and real.
About Curriculum of Computer Science
Computer science spans a wide range, from its theoretical and algorithmic foundations to cutting-edge developments in robotics and smartphones, computer vision, intelligent systems, bioinformatics, and other exciting areas.
Computer science spans the range from theory through programming. Curricula that reflect this breadth are sometimes criticized for failing to prepare graduates for specific jobs. While other disciplines may produce graduates with more immediately relevant job-related skills, computer science offers a comprehensive foundation that permits graduates to adapt to new technologies and new ideas.

Computer science covers most of the vertical space between the extreme top and extreme bottom because computer scientists generally do not deal with just the hardware that runs software, or just the organization that makes use of the information that computing can provide.
As a group, computer scientists care about almost everything in between those areas (down as far as the software that enables devices to work and up as far as the information systems that help organizations to operate). They design and develop all types of software from systems infrastructure (operating systems, communications programs, etc.) to application technologies (web browsers, databases, search engines, etc.)
Computer scientists create these capabilities, but they do not manage the deployment of them. Therefore, the shaded area for computer science narrows and then stops as we move to the right. This is because computer scientists do not help people to select computing products, or tailor products to organizational needs, or learn to use such products.
Overall, there are far more degree programs in computer science than in any other computing discipline. The great majority of colleges and universities offer a CS degree. To some extent, this is a historical artifact: computer science was the only substantive computing discipline that focused explicitly on software development when academic computing degree programs emerged in the 1970s. When most colleges created their computing degree programs, computer science was the only choice that had strong ties to mathematics, science, and/or engineering.

Lipin, Leon, Philip and Chris of S6 CSE-B have successfully developed a real-time Linux kernel for their smartphone Lenovo Vibe K5 from Android sources (Marshmallow). The kernel has been flashed to their smart-phone. A screenshot is appended here. The team is getting ready to build a fully functional Operating System for Lenovo Vibe K5. This is a new milestone in the history of CSE department, as there aren't any official release for Kernel or the Operating System from Android or other clones for Lenovo Vibe K5. Congratulations to the team.
