According to the Computer Science and Computer Engineering department at University of Arkansas, "Innovations in the world of computer technology have changed our lives drastically over the past few decades. It's hard to believe that twenty years ago few people had heard of the internet. Today, computer scientists are busy developing new ideas that will shape the future.

As a computer scientist, you would specialize in the software side of computing, focusing on writing new programs that allow computer applications to run faster and more efficiently. You might work for a security company, creating technology that reduces the risks of viruses and hackers, or develop flight simulation exercises that allow airline pilots to practice managing flight problems.

Computer engineers, on the other hand, deal with both software and hardware. As a computer engineer, you could design entire computer systems and networks, making sure that the hardware, or physical equipment, is capable of running the appropriate software. You might build devices such as retinal scanners that identify people by checking their eyes, or you could design computers that are incorporated into prosthetic devices to aide people with disabilities."
