Benefits of choosing computer science field in Pakistan

The Dilemma After A - Levels

After passing intermediate or A levels exams, a horde of students applies to different universities that offer STEM education. Many candidates already have their plans and, they work towards their goals. On the other hand, many students remain unsure about what field they should select. If you have studied math in college, you are eligible to apply for CS in any institution in the country.
CS has many subfields like artificial intelligence, data science, and cybersecurity, etc. Computer science revolves around programming, web designing, development, networking, and engineering. Here are the benefits of choosing CS over other fields.

Demand for Developers

The demand for programmers is ever-increasing in the whole world. As Pakistan is a developing country, it has a long way to go in terms of innovation and technology. Many industries like banking, business, and medical need developers for automation. The advent of online systems, AI systems, applications, and cloud storage has produced a need for more developers. Also, technology is always going to evolve in the future, so the need for computer scientists is never going to end.

Freelancing Opportunities

One of the pros of choosing CS is that you can do freelancing. Most developers do not have to work 9 to 5 at a specific place. Freelancing does not only free you from a fixed time frame but also provides more opportunities. You can work for clients all over the world while being your boss.

Numerous Subdisciplines

The other advantage of becoming a computer scientist is that it is not limited to a single career. In other words, you can choose a substream according to your interest. After studying various concepts of programming, you may opt for application or game development, ethical hacking, networking, web designing, and much more according to your interest. On the other hand, in all other fields, one is confined to a single career.

High Paying Job

As mentioned above, due to increased demand, there is a high scope of CS in Pakistan. A career in CS promises you a high income. The more skillful and expert you become, the more money you make.


To conclude, it is true that there are a lot of advantages of choosing CS as your career, but you must follow your heart first. A degree in CS is not an easy one but, it will pay off. Think about your interests and talents before selecting a field.
