What Can You Do with a Computer Programming Degree?

Radek, what jobs can you get with a Computer Programming Degree? I’m wondering, what can I do with a Computer Programming Degree?

Most computer programming graduates go on to become programmers! Once the engineers design the software programs, skilled programmers translate the design into a language the computer can understand. This can be done in a number of programming languages, and computer programmers who are comfortable working in a number of languages will have more job opportunities.

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of computer programmers is expected to decline by 3% through 2018. Many computer programming jobs are being outsourced to India, China, and elsewhere. Computer programmers willing to keep up with changing languages and techniques will be more hirable than those who do not make it a priority.

Expect to work in a lab or an office, sitting at a desk. Some computer programmers even work from home. As for your employer, you could find yourself working for a giant software company, a small business, the government, a hospital, your local school district, or yourself as a freelancer.
