I want to know 'What Computer Scientists Actually Do'. It is kind of a very vague thing to me. I don't know anything about it, actually.
I have many people in my family who chose and plan on choosing CS but I do not understand what they do after being done with their Academic Classes and perhaps after their placement too.
Do they continue with their job and work on their own projects too ? If so, then what kind of projects do they work on ?
And what if one doesn't go for business administration ? What designations do they get in companies ?

These may look like different questions but it is actually just one question and those may be parts of it. All of these make up that question. What they study and how they apply their knowledge or do they even (I mean how many of them).

You can understand this I think. That first line is everything here.

Thank You !

    $\begingroup$ This question is not about computer science or even education but about census data. I recommend you look up up said data for your country; they know which jobs people with any given education have. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ As far as I know, most computer science majors are programmers. A few open start-ups, or work in software design or algorithm design. A handful are academics. Some probably leave computer science for a different career. $\endgroup$ Mar 21 '16 at 10:54

    $\begingroup$ @Raj 1) You want to replace your own research by asking here, and openly reject the prospect of objective answers. That makes this question unsuitable for this platform. 2) We (moderators and community-moderating users) are paying for this site with considerable time investments. Rude behaviour will not be tolerated. $\endgroup$
