I've completed my B Sc in Computer Science a one year ago.
There are so many computer-related courses and I actually don't know what's the difference between the courses. Eg. computer science, software engineering, information technology, advanced computing
I would like to create a game/software in the future, so what course should I take?
Im interested in learning C language and java
For example a boilermaker is a tradesman. What type of tradesman do you get in the computer field?
Also tell whether manipal university is good in terms of placement,infrastructure and all..
Be specific. For example tell me what phones will be like in 20 years, as opposed to saying "great advances in technology" or "more advanced telecommunications".
So I wanna get a job as a computer programmer. Im only 16 and i know nothing about college so try to help out. Also could you look up good schools in st.louis missouri for that courses? Or maybe I could be something other than a computer programmer but something that has to do with computer science.
Along with my B.com graduation i am planning to go for CCNA and MCSE. What are the job prospects of learning these two networking courses?. Could i get myself a decent job. I have already done a course on computer hardware and networking, the basic course. Should i learn more networking courses? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
PLEASE ANSWER!! What jobs pay well and what degrees do you need for them?
Hi, I have completed my b.e. in Aug 2009, but didnt get job regarding my field due to recession period.
I want to build my career in IT field, so Can anybody tell me, which course to do to get a better job in IT field? and also from which institute to do that course? I stay in Kalyan, Thane district.
Thanx in advance.
Hi...can someone tell me about the opportunites in IT-NETWORKING?
currently i'm working as a support engineer (gnng 2 fnsh one year soon)
its an international voice process dealing with networking
I would like to move to IT-NETWORKING.
I'm planning to finish CCNA in a couple of months
plz let me knw the companies and related opportunites
I know c and c++ language to some extent and som basics of sql. i planning to do a MCP. suggest som latest program package will be suitable for a better career.i also need to know the procedure to write the exams, cost,preparation methods etc.....
I'm thinking about changing my major to computer science. My question is, do I have to be good at math? Because I'm not really good at it but I've always been interested in computer degrees.
I'm thinking of going to University next year. I really love Computers I spend more than 6 hours everyday on my Laptop but I'm not sure about the job opportunities in this field. On the other hand, I like Civil Engineering. I'm really confused any suggestions. Thanks
Billions at stake in border contract
By Dave Montgomery

Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif.
Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff sees a mix of technology and manpower.
WASHINGTON — The Bush administration is expected next month to choose an industry consortium to erect a high-tech security shield along the U.S. borders, launching one of the federal government's most ambitious public-works projects in years.
The Department of Homeland Security (DHS) calls the proposed Secure Border Initiative Net (SBInet) the "most comprehensive effort in the nation's history" to gain control of more than 6,000 miles of border with Mexico and Canada, and 2,000 miles of coastline.
SBInet is a centerpiece of President Bush's efforts to fortify the U.S.-Mexico border at a time Congress is locked in a struggle to revise the nation's immigration laws. Administration officials say they intend to proceed with the security net regardless of the outcome of the debate over immigration legislation.
The multibillion-dollar undertaking has ignited a contract battle among industry teams headed by four leading defense companies — Boeing, Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman and Raytheon — and Ericsson, the Swedish-based telecommunications giant with U.S. headquarters in Plano, Texas.
Collectively, the teams are composed of nearly 40 companies in more than 15 states, a diverse lineup that includes global engineering firms, niche industries adept at biometric identification or surveillance, and aerospace corporations better known for churning out warplanes, tanks and missiles.
U.S. Customs and Border Protection, a branch of the DHS, is expected to announce a winner by Sept. 30.
As envisioned by Homeland Security Secretary Michael Chertoff, SBInet would marry industry expertise with the 42,000-employee Customs and Border Protection to create a wall of technology, manpower and infrastructure in the next six years. The initial cost is projected at $2.5 billion, but the price could be much higher.
The shield is a dominant component of the Secure Border Initiative that Chertoff announced in November to stem the flow of i****************s. More than 1.2 million i****************s were arrested in 2005, nearly all on the southern border.
Although Deputy Homeland Security Secretary Michael Jackson told industry officials the project is "not about simply buying gizmos," much of the attention has focused on the potential mix of technology. Most of the proposals include state-of-the-art sensors, mounted cameras, unmanned aerial vehicles, radar and other surveillance hardware.
Calls for toughening the border have intensified with the approach of the fifth anniversary of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks and the recent alleged terrorist bomb plot in Britain. But the project has come under heightened scrutiny on Capitol Hill after a congressional report last month blasted DHS procurement polices.
The bipartisan report, released by the House Committee on Government Reform, identified $34.3 billion worth of DHS contracts marred by significant overcharges, wasteful spending or mismanagement. The troubled projects include a largely ineffective camera-surveillance system along the Mexican and Canadian borders.
Rep. Henry Waxman, D-Calif., complained that SBInet could be exposed to the same problems, contending the DHS is giving industry too much latitude in determining how the system should be tailored. "That's not governing," he said. "It's utter incompetence, and it's going to cost the taxpayers billions."
From the bidders' vantage point, SBInet could create thousands of jobs and illustrate the defense industry's expanding transition into homeland security. Tools of war — such as radar and satellite surveillance — easily can be redirected into the campaign to guard the home front, industry officials say.
"We see it as an increasing market," said John Douglass, president and chief executive officer of the Aerospace Industries Association. "Many of the technologies that make you a successful aerospace contractor would also make you a successful homeland-security contractor."
Several of the team members started preparing for the project more than two years ago, when the DHS was considering a since-abandoned border initiative called America's Shield. Team representatives spent months on the border, and several bidders set up remote border-area test sites to evaluate equipment.
Nearly 60 potential bidders expressed interest in the project before the DHS winnowed the field to the five rival teams. Universities in Texas, New Mexico and Arizona are aligned with several of the teams, reflecting academia's growing expertise in homeland security and border demographics.
Bidders made oral presentations in the past two weeks and have until Monday to update their proposals.
While SBInet bristles with opportunity, the winning team will face immense obstacles in trying to create a leakproof "virtual wall" traversing rugged desert terrain in the south and mountainous, wooded landscape in the north. The challenges probably will include property-rights disputes and environmental issues.
Sensors and cameras have been operating along the borders for years; the SBInet team will be charged with building a system tying all the pieces together. In addition to technology, the industry team will provide contract personnel for non-law-enforcement jobs and train government agents to adapt to the new system.
Sensors popular item
In January, Jackson urged industry officials to be innovative without straying "onto the wacky edge of creativity." Most proposals call for a network of thousands of sensors that would detect movement, sound and, in some cases, odor.
The sensor then would flash an alarm on a computerized map in a command-and-control center, where an operator would train a long-range mounted camera on the site to determine whether an animal or a human intruder tripped the alarm.
If necessary, agents would be dispatched. Several, if not all, of the teams would augment the protection with unmanned surveillance aircraft and, in some cases, high-altitude surveillance balloons

Hey, our math teacher has asked us to make a project telling her what we want to be when we grow up, what education is needed to do that? and how math is used in it?
I am choosing to be software engineer. Any help on it please.
I am a BCA fresher and was thinking about getting certified in either of the following domains: CCNA from Cisco OR RHCE from Redhat.
Now, am kind of confused which one should I start with.
I want to start with a course which (after getting certified) can fetch me a good job with some remarkable salary package. So that I further fund my certifications and studies (so u see financial limitations here).
I have to take certification exam so I am wondering which would be good to start with.
I want to be a security professional years down the line. Just thought to mention it if it helps you in guiding me.
Thanks a lot experts for your answer and time..!!
I'm hoping I can get some opinions and information on the different areas within the field of computers and what types of jobs one would do with the different specializations. I know that there is computer science, programming, security, IT, and computer information systems. What are some others that I didn't list? What does each area entail and what types of jobs can you get for each specialization? I don't really like the idea of programming. I consider myself to be pretty proficient with computers but I have zero experience with coding and the things I've read about computer science and programming make me think those areas are just not for me. I guess I'm looking more for like a business side of computers or something not as focused on engineering and calculus and physics and building hardware and creating software. I'm definitely willing to learn some different coding and stuff but I don't think the engineering and programming stuff is what I would excel at. So what areas of the field should I research? Thanks for any insight you guys can offer.
