In the second part of your final project, you will write a professional reflection in which you articulate how you see yourself as a computer science professional in relation to one of the current and emerging directions in the industry: big data, robotics, cybersecurity, or the Internet of Things (IoT). You will choose one of these topics as a lens through which you can discuss your experiences and goals in the computer science industry.
Specifically, the following critical elements must be addressed:
I. Explain the significance of your chosen topic (big data, robotics, cybersecurity, or the Internet of Things) in the computer science industry.
A. Describe your topic for someone who may not be familiar with what it is. Be sure to provide real-life examples. (For instance, you might talk
about Amazon if you are describing big data).
B. Describe the future development and possible applications of your topic in society.
C. Detail the career opportunities in your topic area, including how someone would prepare to take on those careers.
II. Reflect on your experiences inside and outside this course
A. Explain why you focused on your chosen topic and how this course helped inform that choice. For instance, you may see yourself as working as a
cyber-security specialist in the future.
B. Detail your future plans in relation to your topic at this point in your computer science career.
C. Based on your course work, especially on the work you included in the first part of your project (the Collection of Problem-Solving Activities),
describe how data structures and algorithms are important functions in your topic area.
Guidelines for Submission: Your professional reflection should be a 2–3 page Microsoft Word document, double spaced, using 12-point Times New Roman font,
one-inch margins, and APA formatting.
