Careers and employability

Computer science gives you the skills to both solve problems and implement solutions. From biology via astrophysics to psychology, from the financial industry via pharmaceuticals to the media industry, computer science is key.

If you're a software engineer and doing it right, you should never stop learning. You should always be pushing what you know, figuring out new stuff, and the pace of my learning has not slowed down at all since leaving university.
