If there’s any profession whose work is truly on the cutting edge, it’s that of the computer scientist. Computer scientists are the professionals who research, design, and create new technology and computer systems. They look for ways to design better computer systems to solve IT problems for businesses or clients, and they also produce innovative consumer goods. The type of information technology the computer scientist works with depends on their educational background and professional interests. Some work with virtual reality, computer chips, robotics, or software systems. Computer scientists make be employed in private firms or with colleges and universities. Those in academic settings are more likely to work on computer theory, while the research at private firms tends to be narrower and have more immediate practical or business applications.

Most information and computer scientists have a PhD degree in a relevant area, such as computer science, electrical engineering, or computer engineering. These intensive degree programs require that students conduct a large research project over a period of years, the results of which are documented in their dissertation. Applicants to these programs will need at least a bachelor’s degree in a computer or information science area.

The work of computer scientists is only growing in importance, as technology becomes more ingrained in business and everyday life. Because of this, job growth for computer scientists should be excellent in the coming years, and qualified applicants should have very good job prospects. Particular industries, such as software publishing and computer systems design, will be hiring a disproportionate number of new computer scientists. The middle half of computer scientists earn $75,000-124,000 a year.

This website offers school details to prospective students as an informational resource. The appearance of a school listing on this website should not be interpreted as an endorsement by the school of this site.

This website also offers school data. With the exception of the recommend rate percentage (which is the average based on the student reviews submitted to our partner site GradReports), all of the data was collected in 2014-2016 from the National Center for Education Statistics or from an official representative of the school. The NCES is the primary governmental entity for gathering and presenting data related to education. The NCES data is updated annually as soon as it becomes available. The NCES does not release data into downloadable formats until it has been approved, so the most currently available data will not be for the most recent academic year. Salaries and job growth were collected in 2016-2017 from the Bureau of Labor Statistics.

Financial aid information applies to those students who qualify for financial aid.

Colleges and Degrees takes no position with respect to the information or opinions expressed in the user comments/reviews and is not responsible for their content.

Our tuition numbers reflect data collected from the National Center for Education Statistics.

Recommendation rate refers to the percent of students who said they would recommend this school based on reviews submitted to our partner site, GradReports.com.
This indicates that a school has an annual tuition of $15,000 or less as reported to the National Center for Education Statistics or based on the school's website.
