JAMB subject combination for computer science

 In this era of information technology, computer science is gradually turning into the foundational academic course for “tech enthusiasts”. 

  To make a move into this highly lucrative field, you need to choose the JAMB subject combination that will legitimize your aspirations of studying computer science.

Who can be called a computer scientist?

They are people who use data science, robotics, and computer programming principles to create or improve computer systems, software, and algorithms and sometimes work with electrical and computer hardware engineers on complex projects.

  So anybody who studied how computer technology work is a computer scientist.

NB: It should be noted that it is not necessarily a must that he must be conversant with the operations of the hardware like computer engineers.
