The early foundations of computer science go back some 4,000 years to the creation of the abacus. Like the ancient Greeks and Egyptians who studied mathematics, today's computer scientists should be skilled at analyzing problems and creating solutions that can be automated. Computer science degree programs typically cover areas like computation; database design and implementation; and computer graphics and systems analysis. Computer and information scientists had an average salary of $93,950 in 2006, according to the U.S. Department of Labor. Employment prospects in this field are expected to soar by 37% through 2016, according to the Department of Labor.
