Computer Science Engineering in India

Computer Science Engineering in India is the branch of engineering that deals with the design, development and implementation of the hardware and software system. Computer Science Engineering in India is rapidly growing degree. It incorporate the study of Programming languages, computer architecture, algorithms, data structures, operating systems, computer networks, software engineering and computer graphics.

Demand of Computer Science Engineering

In India, Computer Science is one of the famous engineering field due to its digitization. Many Multinational IT companies and startups are demanding computer science engineer every year. Every year more than 1.5 million computer science engineer graduate in India among them more than 90% get their placement. As per NASSCOM, the Indian IT industry is projected to grow at a rate of 8.4% in fiscal year 2023 and reach a revenue of USD 245 billion.

Cost of Computer Science Engineering

Computer Science Engineering can cost up to 3 LPA on an average i.e 12 Lakh for four years. It is one of the very expensive investment. Other expenses includes Food & Accommodation, Travel expenses, Reading material expenses & other Miscellaneous expenses. Collectively from starting to graduation Computer Science engineer can cost up to 14 Lakh to 16 Lakh.

Jobs of Computer Science Engineer

Computer Science Engineer have a wide range of  job opportunities available in various sectors. Some of them are listed below:-

1)Web Developer

They can land job as a web developer in any IT Companies where they can make website and other e commerce website for their clients using different programming language.

2) Software Developer

Software developer is one of the very popular jobs among computer science graduates. They develop different software as per the demand of the market or clients.

3) System Administrator

They maintain and manage the technical infrastructure of the the organization. They install, troubleshoot and configure the hardware and software system of the organization.

4) Data Scientist

IT is one of the emerging and popular field of the computer science. They have to extract the useful data using different tools like machine learning, statistical analysis & data modelling for organizational decision making.

5) Cybersecurity analyst

With the increasing threats in the cyber security, there is a high demand of computer science graduate who can protect the data from theft.

6) Cloud Architect

They design and implement cloud-based solutions for organization. They ensure reliability, security and scalability of cloud based application and system.

7) Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning

This is one of the rapidly growing field, with the necessary skill computer science engineer can develop various algorithm for machine learning and Al application.

Computer Science Engineering Salary

Most of the computer science graduate are placed in different companies. For Fresher level the average salary of computer engineer graduate is in between 2.5 lakh to 5 lakh, for mid level it is in between 7 lakh to 15 lakh and for senior level it can go up to  2 crore per year.


Seeing all the above analysis it is worth studying the Computer Science Engineering because of its lucrative salary offered after years of experience in the field. But from my point of view its seems to be costing lots of money for the graduation, in spite of graduation from the college one can easily learn the necessary skills from internet with very low or no investment in order the land good paying jobs in the top MNC. That is the reason why  I consider Engineering as the greatest Scam.
