Computers affect almost every aspect of modern-day life – and as the technology continues to advance, so does the demand for computer scientists. This is especially evident when you consider the expected employment growth rate: 12-24 percent through 2026 – much faster than the national average. And with median salaries that range from about $106,000 for software developers to $143,000 for computer and information systems managers – there’s no doubting the value of computer science skills.
