Computer Science education in Pakistan is not an easy road to drive onto. Being a computer scientist myself, it’s fair to say that four years of computer science studies were probably the hardest but, there is something quite fruitful if you wish to study computers. First up is algorithms, pretty straightforward, sometimes complex but, computer science depends on your ability to understand and build algorithms. Mathematics carries potentially the biggest part out of all in computer sciences so if you did win Kangaroo competitions back in school, feel obliged to go for computer sciences.
The roadmap for computer sciences in Pakistan is very similar to that being taught in european countries which means there is a high probability you can find a livelihood elsewhere. Computer Science is a safe degree, jobs in computer sciences will never come to an end. That is for sure, the subject area is so strong and active when it comes to research standards that it is highly unlikely to ever fade away.
