Updated as on Sep 13, 2021. One of the top choices for students going into B. Tech has been Computer Science Engineering (CS) for the past few years. Going by this trend and the demand for this stream, colleges and universities have also been increasing the seats in CS to accommodate more and more students.
However, according to some industry experts this trend may change with newer technologies coming in and Industry 4.0 replacing many jobs. So will the industry have less jobs and more CS engineers than it may really need?
Well, not really. According to HR leaders of IT /ITeS or E commerce and technology space, newer areas which are coming up in Computer Sciences will witness a rise in demands for Computer Science. The skill sets and specialisations of a CS engineer may change with AI/AR or ML / Data Science but demand will remain if not grow, in Computer Science.
Rather core engineering and allied streams are predicted to get a boost due to the developments around computer sciences. For example robotics engineering may see a rise in demands for mechanical engineers along with computer science engineers or Information Technology (IT) engineering.
