Consider computer science!

Be creative: Design the user interface (how people use the program) and what the product should do.

Making it work right is fun! Use your logic and problem solving skills every day.

Teamwork is the key: Several teams of 10-15 people work for several years to create complex software programs.

Work in any field: choose one that interests you now, change at any time - the computer science is the same!

  • Create the latest fun technology: cell phones, online applications, consumer electronics, video games
  • Help people: medical, communications, air traffic control
  • Work with money finance, banking, insurance, rental purchases, inventory control

Work in any kind of company or organization: just starting up, small and owned by the employees, larger and publicly traded.
