Science, the study of the principles and use of computer, refers to the four major
areas of computing: theory, algorithms, programming languages, and
architecture. The areas of computer science are expansive, working in theories
of computation, information, and coding. It also involves artificial
intelligence, cryptography, and robotics. The depths and uses for computer
science are extensive and used in almost everything that we use commonly.
Engineering focuses specifically on computer
hardware and software, integrating computer science and electrical engineering.
Also called a software
engineer, they are responsible for developing, testing and evaluating
everything that make our computers work. They also have a role in the
development of new games, applications, and even in the design of new operating
Bangalore is referred to as the “Silicon Valley of India” because of the role
the city has in exporting IT. For studying computer
science and engineering in Bangalore, there are multiple colleges to choose
from. There is the University
Visvesvaraya College of Engineering, New Horizon College of Engineering,
Bangalore Institute of Technology, and
the M. S. Ramaiah Institute of Technology. Schools are either private or
public and extensive in all studies besides computer science and engineering.
the pay scale varies by position. The median annual salary for software
developers and engineers is 350,000 Rupees; the median for senior engineers is
almost double, and the median for IT Managers is over 1.1 Million Rupees. However,
it should be noted that demand for such engineers and developers is low in
India, but demand in the United States is high. Plus, India is facing strong
global competition with production and salary standards, attracting many
Indians to leave for another country, whether it’s the U.S. or Japan. In Bangalore, the computer science and
engineering industry is still strong and not showing any sign of slowing
down despite the high competition from other major hubs of IT.
The industry is full of people who
have become world famous for their world in computer science and engineering, a
list too long to mention. There is Bill Gates, the co-founder of Microsoft, and
Apple’s founders, Steve Jobs and Steve Wozniak. Noam Chomsky’s work with
linguistics made an impact with programming language theory, Shiva Ayyadurai
developed the interoffice system we call email, and Rajeev Chandrasekhar, now a
Member of India’s parliament, founded Jupiter Capital to invest in media and
technology. Finally, there is the man considered the father of computer science
and artificial intelligence – Alan Turing, who led the breaking of Enigma
during World War II and developed the theory of computers decades before it
would be made individually.
many jobs within these fields people can choose from. These are all for those
involved in the tech industry, such as those in programming, analysis,
engineering, and software developer. These are the people global hi-tech
companies always seek to hire: Microsoft, IBM, Hewlett-Packard, and Adobe among
others. In Bangalore itself, Indian technological companies including Infosys
, and HAL
have their headquarters here. There are two clusters of the city: Electronics City and
Whitefield. This is the heart of the town “Silicon Plateau,” as some rather
call it because the city is on a plateau, not in a valley.
Computer science and engineering in
is valuable because of the education
taught, as well as the city itself being a hub for IT in India. With 8.5
million people living there, Bangalore is the second fastest-growing major
metropolis in India and ranked fourth in India by overall GDP contribution. India’s IT industry and education is
still solid and Bangalore is still a town of attraction for locals interested.
