Computer Science is transforming the way we live, interact and transact in today’s digital world. It’s hard to believe that we once lived in an era where computers and digital technologies were not ubiquitous and instantaneous. Research has projected that technology workers in Australia alone will grow two times faster than other occupations by 2024. That is a total of approximately 809,000 tech workers and of this, nearly half will require some knowledge and skills in Computer Science.
Accelerated by the COVID-pandemic, this has called for organisations around the world to race against time in creating the latest, most efficient, most affordable products and services for the fickle market and digital adopters.
Here are four notable companies that are ahead and leading the way to the finish line in Computer Science:
