What jobs are available to people who do a combined course of Computer Science and Maths at uni, or maybe even just Computer Science.

Also how hard will it be to get out of uni, start working and eventually get a salary of 60k+?

Depends where you do it. Pretty much all of the above, usually anything at all related to anything at all you do in your degree. Computer Scientist have such a range of skills, it's really easy to find a job if you're a top end computer scientist.

Algorithmic trader maybe one of your choice. Especially, you studied Computer science and Maths and want a high salary to start with. I took one course before. But, my Math and Computer science background is too week.

Hope this can help you!

How can you be a top end computer scientist? Is it shown through which university etc you went and what you got?

Also which of these jobs have a salary of over 60k and which jobs here are not jobs where you sit down looking at your computer most of the day?

You're in the wrong field if you want something where you 'won't be looking at computers' for most of your day. While computer science isn't all about the computers per se, it is, as the name implies mostly about them and how to manipulate information and data within them via algorithms etcetera, the vast majority of all this requires that you are at a computer.

Since you don't even have your degree yet, you should set your sights on a more realistic financial goal for your first graduate role.

I don't mind sitting at a computer most of the day but I just wanted to know which jobs are avail. that I can work in a team and have SOME sort of social aspect even if it is talking to other members of the team to solve problems etc (that can be taken to a friendship out of work).

Also I just wanted to aim for something and not just limit myself to financial set

May I ask how it is going and what uni you are studying at? Also what A-levels etc you studied and results?




Also guys, are there any jobs where I can work for and get a decent salary eventually, over 50k (I don't mean as soon as I graduate) and that isn't in investment banking or working with interest.
