Posted by Psion [send private reply] at February 15, 2002, 06:53:26 AM I personally would say that the best is professor or senior research scientist in computer science at a university. You probably mean digital computer industry, so I'm guessing you're not into things that actually require thought like I've suggested. :-)
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at February 15, 2002, 07:57:11 AM I also want o undertake a computer career , more like you mentioned ,Psion. I would want to try Computer Science , but thats a long way away , so I am not really thinking about it. Is mathematics a major part of computer science ?
Posted by metamorphic [send private reply] at February 15, 2002, 08:00:23 AM Well the computing industry can be broken down into many things. for example:
Programming (applications, games, languages)
Data communications (Networking)
Global communications (Internet, Internet technology)
Digital Media (websites, special effects)
Computer systems (hardware, system maintinence)
R&D (new processor chips)
Then each of these can be broken down again and again. eg, programming:
then broken down again and again. The IT industry is huge. Best way to do it is find at least a broad catagory you like in computing (like the internet for example) and then build on that and narrow your choice down
Posted by Psion [send private reply] at February 15, 2002, 05:08:02 PM vladimir, computer science is a field of math.
Posted by vladimir_l [send private reply] at February 15, 2002, 05:23:56 PM I knew that .... Thats great .. So its part of a maths department ? Anyway I am oof to russia , so its much more different there.

Programming computers (not just PC, also ęcontrollers, basicaly everything capable of being programmed and having I/O ports) which need to control heavy machinery, robots(my playing field), a domotica system or a refrigerator.
This is an area with a great futur. Basicaly everything these days has a ęprocessor in it.
