The first semester is quickly winding down as I’ve realized there’s more opportunities waiting for me to pursuit them. I never knew that there could be more things that I can actually find myself thriving in. I’m of course talking about my major. There’s been representatives from Career Services at MCTC informing me about the great opportunities and assistance you can get from enrolling yourself into Career Services where you can talk about the type of majors you’re interested in. There’s majors I have an interest in such as medicine, mathematics, and even business. However, I’ve strongly opened my heart to computer science.
To be completely honest, I have no clue why I wanted to gain my interest in computer science. I have always thought it was a pretty good occupation to be in, yet I really wanted nothing to do with it. Coming to college has really made me become more open-minded and aware of the different varieties in business. I find it quite fun and astonishing. Since technology is increasing in society, computing is actually part of everything we do! Whether it involves watching a movie, TV, driving, or playing video games. Understanding different elements of computing is necessary for the 21st century.
The more I’m learning about computer science from talking to advisers and doing research, this may be the first time I’ve had an interest in science! Some details about computer science in general is that it’s disciplinary involving problem solving skills and practice. Also computer scientists must have hands-on experience. It’s good that this major requires communication skills since that’s a weakness for me. Luckily there’s a lot of mathematical skills and thinking. At the University of Minnesota I’ve read that the U has a very great computer science program as the student rate is skyrocketing. An impressive stat is that the U of M’s Science and Engineering department has received more than $35 million in new research funding, which was very intriguing.
The things that really excite me about this major is that there’s project work groups to better your communication, designing, team working, and management skills. So there’s flexibility within the computer science field. Then there’s also the fact that mentors really prepare students for competitive career positions, and academic positions. I’ve always would want to face a challenge. Every major program at any college would want to admit an incoming student who genuinely wants to attend a particular program. Furthermore, there’s software development and engineering that also requires vigorous mental skills.
Computer science is one of the fields where it’s basically impossible to predict the next outcome.
This is the reason we can’t begin to visualize the ways you can contribute to the world and make your life’s work exciting and concrete!
