I am planing to do MS in computer science but confused with wide range of specializations.
I have just completed my B.E. in computer science and i have no industrial(work) experience, so i do not know that which specializations is in demand or will be in future. I was planing to select one of from this: 1,6, & 14 but i want more suggestions. I am really in need of advice from expert and experienced IT professionals, please guys help me out.
@avii • 10 Feb, 2013 • 1 like Rather than going with demand, go with one you like. And as a matter of fact, all are equally demanded.
@Kaustubh Katdare • 10 Feb, 2013 No one in this world can predict which of the options you've mentioned will be in demand next year or a few years from now. The best thing to do is to pick up the option which you think is interesting and try to excel in it. That will ensure that you are really good at what you're doing and there will never be any scarcity of jobs for people who excel at something they love doing.

That advice may sound a little different from what you might be expecting; but it's the best advice anyone can give.

All you should focus on is finding out which of the fields look very interesting to you.
@AB1990 • 14 Feb, 2013 Thanks avii and THE_BIG_K for the advice. i hope ill come up with my area of interest.
@Ankita Katdare • 01 Aug, 2015 I request @Shashank Moghe @Smriti Jha @Praveen-Kumar and @Shreyas Sule to share their opinions on this. We can discuss what are the latest trends in specialisation in the domain of engineering you've chosen.
@Shashank Moghe • 01 Aug, 2015 Well no clue about CS, thpugh I think uou missed data mini g and big data from your list. I keep hearing theae two buzz words a lot. Koustubh Katdare's advice is probably the best. Do what you love. There is always a market for passionate and skilled engineers.
@saharaD • 05 Oct, 2015 Hi @AB1990,

This is a great time to be connected to fields related to database - Data mining, Bioinformatics, IoT, Augmented Reality etc. All major players are investing highly to find solutions to the computing problems that these present.

Artificial Intelligence and Robotics are collaboration of many specializations - Algorithms, Design, Embedded Systems to name a few. I suggest you to gain proficiency in any of the tools/software that the industry uses.

Networking and Information Security are evergreen fields in IT I would say. They are the driving force behind the boom and breakthroughs the field has seen.

YOU need to pick up a domain that interests you and excel in that. As, this industry changes trends in blink of an eye, no one can promise that a particular field will remain relevant in few years from now. But there will always be a need for people who excel.

Hope I was able to clear some of your queries, feel free to drop a comment if I missed something.
