Computer scientists design computers. They also find new uses for them. Computer scientists work in colleges and universities, in industry, and in government. Some work as part of a team. They design new computer parts and the software used by computers.
Some computer scientists are researchers and inventors. They develop ways to use computer technology to solve complicated problems.

Computer scientists work in offices, labs, or at home. They work about 40 hours a week. Some work evenings or weekends to meet deadlines or solve problems. They spend a lot of time in front of a computer and may develop eye strain. Back aches, and hand and wrist strain are other possible problems.

Computer scientists work as theorists, researchers, or inventors. Their jobs are distinguished by the higher level of theoretical expertise and innovation they apply to complex problems and the creation or application of new technology. Those employed by academic institutions work in areas ranging from complexity theory, to hardware, to programming-language design. Some work on multidisciplinary projects, such as developing and advancing uses of virtual reality, extending human-computer interaction, or designing robots. Their counterparts in private industry work in areas such as applying theory, developing specialized languages or information technologies, or designing programming tools, knowledge-based systems, or even computer games.

Computer scientists usually need a college degree. Some jobs even require a master's or Ph.D. degree. Prior work experience is also very important. For example, someone may become a systems analyst after working as a programmer.
Employers like to hire people with computer experience who know several computer programming languages. A course in programming or systems design is a good way to begin. Finally, the more computer education one has, the better the person's job prospects will be.

One half of computer and information scientists, research earned between $58,630 and $98,490 a year in 2002. The lowest-paid 10 percent earned less than $42,890. The highest-paid 10 percent earned more than $121,650 a year.
