Computer Science vs Software Development?
Hi, I currently 18 years old and awaiting to attend college during the spring.
I've come to a confusion on what it is I want to major in. I'm pretty sure I know what I want to do, but I also want to know other possibilities with the path I choose.
I want to be able to create programs/software. I've just had this idea of companies needing people to create programs, or even add-on/upgrade their program's software. Another possibility of designing my very own project that would appeal to others anywhere from computer security or tools that may make your everyday activities easier. I might also want to incorporate myself in the gaming industry creating game add-ons and features.
Then I was thinking of something such as web development as a secondary. Knowing the knowledge of designing websites, or even involving it with some type of software?
Anyways, as you can see I have pretty much layed out what I would love to do as a job and have for personal use.
I just don't EXACTLY know what it is I'm pursuing. Are those the jobs of a Computer scientist, or software developer? I'm sure computer science has a bit of software development in the category, but which is the better solution? I asked a similar question else where, and they went on about how web development would be a waste, and that computer science was in a much higher demand.
I would really appreciate the help from anyone here who has gone to school for either of these and help me choose the correct path to start college.
