pa possible sectors for cs
Pa) Possible Sectors for CS
  • Students need to know how varied and lucrative a career in IT can be.
  • There is a perception that with a qualification in ICT young people will exclusively finds jobs at an IT company or doing rather unglamorous back-office or support work - often in a male-dominated working environment.
  • All businesses today, and in the future, will rely to some extent on IT - for most technology is at the core of whatever they do - whether they operate in retail, manufacturing, financial services, the arts, or virtually any other discipline.

With the right computer science skills young people can find work in any industry, in any sector and in any position.

Pc) Lack of Motivation
  • ICT curriculum should reflect the modern age.
  • Move from know how of “basic desktop applications and hardware” towards more involved concepts such as “programming or networking”.
  • Skills that will be in most demand in the coming decades:
    • Programming languages such as Java, PhP, and .Net
    • Cloud computing skills
    • Big data analytics.
