Computer science vs. computer engineering: What should I study?


These degrees have overlapping curricula but also important differences. A computer science degree focuses more on computer theory and a computer engineering degree is generally focused on physical computer hardware. Each degree has benefits that will help you fine tune skills for a future career in tech. A computer science degree is a great choice for anyone wanting to learn the software side of computer technology. This degree will prepare students to specialize in hardware or software systems, A.I., data science, cybersecurity, or even video game development.

Are you considering going to graduate school? Are you aware of all your options and what a graduate program involves--financially, mentally, and emotionally? Entering a graduate program is an important decision that will affect your life for 2-3 years and should not be taken lightly. Understand the pros and cons, how you'll pay for tuition fees, whether you have the stamina and discipline to get through, whether you have the emotional and financial support, and what your prospects are post-graduation when tuition loan interest is mounting. In some disciplines, having a graduate degree is a necessity for getting a "career" job.

Comprehensive List of Data Science Graduate Programs


Its misleading to say that data science do robotics. Sure, this domain requires some knowledge of data science, but this field is & has always been control system & signal processing engineering. It is not data science per se. This is where the hype of data science becomes ridiculous. The field of robotics had existed for decades before data-science emerges, which is mainly a re-hash of existing analytics domain.

Where Have All the Domestic Graduate Students Gone?

Communications of the ACM

The U.S. has been a magnet for technical talent from all over the world since World War II. For example, immigrants have been awarded nearly 40% of the Nobel Prizes won by Americans in chemistry, medicine, and physics since 2000. Tech industry giants Apple, Amazon, Facebook, and Google were all founded by first- or second-generation immigrants. As Sudip Parikh, the CEO of the American Association for the Advancement of Science, wrote in a recent Science editorial, "Immigrants make America great." Yet in the past couple of months, the U.S. Government has taken actions to restrict immigration of technical workforce into the country.
