Computer Scientist

Computer scientists work as theorists, researchers, or inventors. They apply their higher level of theoretical expertise and innovation to complex problems and the creation or application of new technology. Computer scientists employed by academic institutions work in areas such as complexity theory, hardware, and programming-language design. Computer scientists who work in the private industry are involved in areas such as applying theory, developing specialized languages or information technologies, or designing programming tools, knowledge-based systems, or even computer games.

Systems Analyst

Systems analysts not only deal with the analysis of large, complex scale systems and the interactions within those systems but they also solve computer problems and apply computer technology to meet the individual needs of an organization. Systems analysts may design new systems or add a new software application to control more of the computer's power. Most systems analysts work with specific systems that vary with the kind of organization they are held in - business, accounting, or financial systems, or scientific and engineering systems. Systems analysts are sometimes also referred to as systems developers or systems architects.
