Computer science is thristing: where to study and how is income?

What is Computer Science?

Got interested in AI and Data Science, choose Computer Science?

Is it true that Computer Science is lacking real human resources?

Is the income after graduation high as the universities still advertise?

Can bachelor’s degree in Vietnamese universities meet the requirements of markets and companies in the world?

These are FAQs of students wishing to stick with the future of Computer Science. And it is the concern of parents who are giving advices in choosing the future career for their children. Understanding that concern, we will send out reasons to explain clearly in full detail to helping audience / parents to have better understanding in Engineering in general and Computer Science in particular, when AI and Data Science are on the rise.

COMPUTER SCIENCE IS ALWAYS THE POTENTIAL CHOICE OF THE FUTURE

According to the recent update of Vietnam Works Technology Human Resources Market Report 2019, the fields of data technology include AI (Artificial Intelligence), Data Science and Big Data have thrived significantly in the first half of this year with the highly increasing number of job postings and applications.

While pursuing these fields, a wide range of skills are needed, from mathematics to computer science, and of course data gathering. And that is why, with Computer Science, human resources are in scarcity and suffering from serious shortage.

Insights:

  • AI is leading the growth in recruitment demand in the first half of 2019, an increase of 46% compared to 2017, the number of applicants increased by 86%.
  • Data Science witnessed a 21% increase in job postings and a spike in applications to 137%. The figures for Big Data are 35% and 56% respectively.

In fact, in Vietnam market, there are many large and small startups developing potential projects directly related to AI and Machine Learning. Therefore, the paycheck as well as the demand of experts in Computer Science will continue to increase sharply in the coming years. Then, job opportunities for students are extremely wide open. For Computer Science graduates, they will have many opportunities after college. Chances are likely to emerge are the position of data engineer or data analyst, doing jobs related to artificial intelligence at companies and corporations such as: Technology (VNG – Zalo & Zing, VinGroup, Facebook, Grab, Viettel, FPT, Trusting Social …), E-commerce (Lazada.vn, Tiki.vn, thegioididong.com …), Logistics, insurance, supermarket …

In order to correspond with the fast-paced development of the industry, the requirements of learners are also raising. In particular, they will not only learn programming languages, discrete math, linear algebra, software design, but also be taught how to use advanced math and algorithms, computer science and learns how to manipulate and transform information.

COMMENTS FROM PROF. DR. HO TU BAO – WHO HAS BEEN WORKING MORE THAN 40 YEARS IN THIS INDUSTRY (Source: Bao Tuoi Tre)

According to Professor’s conclusions in the course of intensive teaching and research: The nature of artificial intelligence lies in using data intelligently and effectively. If learners understand this, then grasping knowledge and acquiring skills will be extremely easy. Then, good jobs and high salaries will be within reach.

However, many universities still do not fully understand the nature of Data Science as there must be a harmonious connection between Mathematics (mainly statistics); Computer Science (mainly Machine Learning) and specialized knowledge in the field of application. Meanwhile, in many Vietnamese universities, Mathematics is not included in training programs. At the same time, the mathematics disciplines are taught independently, not affiliated with Computer Science. This is a big mistake!

DIFFERENCE AT TAN TAO UNIVERSITY

From the beginning, Computer Science majors have grasped that idea and TTU is proud to be one of the few schools that has the capacity to produce great engineers. After school, students will be able to develop methods and tools of data science as well as data analysts with economic, business or biomedical knowledge to meet the needs of the society.
