Plz help me choose the right field!!!

Postby dawood.muslim » Thu Oct 02, 2008 3:54 pm

Dear friends,
I am very interested in computer science especially in programming, database, networking and operating system. I have done my FSc(Pre-Eng). Now I want to do BCS from Peshawar University. I have already been selected on the merit list. I just want to ask you guys that what do you think about BCS. Is it really a good start for computer science career. If not than what should I do. What is the other alternative for me who loves computer science.
Thanks

if you intend to work as a software developer, you need the skills that employers look for. you're best off with a bachelor's degree in computer science for that.

the second best degree you can try for is mathematics. as edgar dijkstra said:
Programming is one of the most difficult branches of applied mathematics; the poorer mathematicians had better remain pure mathematicians.
two more:
Besides a mathematical inclination, an exceptionally good mastery of ones native tongue is the most vital asset of a competent programmer.
Computer Science is not about computers, any more than astronomy is about telescopes.

Well bachelors in CS is must and best for u if u r eager for things u mentioned. Mathematics and Physics are pre-req for CS and so all essential mathematics and physics subjects will be covered in BCS. BCS is best option.

I think BCS (4 years) is a good move towards the field of computers. And from Peshawar University, that is something special.
