Computer scientists invent new technologies and capabilities in the field. They often apply these advances to real problems such as science or business. The advances may necessitate them to work closely with other kinds of specialists, like engineers. Some of these scientists may specialize in a specific area, including programming or data science.

Computer scientists may: progress or simplify algorithms and create new computing languages. They govern new methods for working with computers, test new systems and designs, and develop models and theories to address issues in the field. They present findings to the scientific community, improve computer hardware performance, and increase the efficiency of computer software and hardware. They often apply these advances to real problems in a wide range of other fields, such as science or business.

A computer scientist is someone who has acquired the comprehension of computer science, the study of the theoretical platforms of information and computation and their application. Computer scientists work on the theoretical area of computer systems, as opposed to the hardware side on which computer engineers mainly focus.

Computer scientists can also focus on their work and research on specific areas, such algorithm and information structure development and design, software engineering, information theory, database theory, computational complexity theory, and programming language theory. Their foundation is the theoretical research of computing from these other fields.

The computer scientist has a very stable career due to the impact computers and technology have now had on society. With the increase in technology, more and more computer scientists will be needed to create these systems and making the computers and other technological devices to work and fulfill the goal of the company creating these products.

Computer scientists create, support and repair computers. Many hours are spent sitting at a desk inside of an office. So, people who want to be computer scientists should feel comfortable with sitting for long hours and inside most of the time. Computer scientists will need to have good communication skills since they will have to discuss their systems with people. They may have to train the employees at their company on these computer systems.
