Anyone with a computer science degree has a good understanding of computer software and hardware, as well as a skill in one or more computer programming languages.

How do I learn computer science?

The programming part of computer science is certainly something that can be self-taught. However, unless you can teach yourself high-level math, such as calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, you'll need to attend a university.

What are jobs that are available for a computer science student?

Someone with a computer science degree often gets a job where they become a programmer and help to create computer software or write scripts. However, once you have a computer science degree, you are capable of working at and applying for most computer-related jobs.
