Life of a computer scientist?..

    • Thread Starter

    I have always been very interested and passionate about computer science and knew i was going to a degree(s) in it and become a software/hardware engineer/computer scientist(forgive me for incorrect syntax if applicable)...

    Recently i have been reflecting upon my choice and confirming that is what i want to do for the rest of my life...

    I already know that is what i want to do but as i said i am just confirming so...

    i am currently at the start of Y11...

    I am one of the top in my class,predicted most A*'s and A's and do computing at GCSE and do many Extra curricular and also many related to computer science....
    I am truly passionate about the subject and would like to study it at Cambridge...


    i would LOVE to hear from people who have chosen this field themselves and there decision making and their experiences...

    Is it sitting in the office all day?

    What is it like to work in apple/google/Facebook/Microsoft/Etc...

    Will going to a top uni be helpful for companies like these?

    Are lives much different a these companies?

    How is the salary?

    Is it possible to make it rich?
    Any other advice will also be greatly appreciated...Thanks!
