Do you mean at dealership level or Manufacturer design level?
I have no idea what that means, please tell me.
I want to be the guy that handles the computer stuff inside of the car, like the dashboard, radio player and etc2. I don't mind having to work on the interior of the car like the engine I just want to confirm that if I take computer science I would be able to get involved in using computer as a tool to work with cars as my job.
I think Johnston is asking whether you want to work in a garage maintaining/repairing cars or if you want to join the OEMs and design the parts/system outright.
I believe you want to work and design future products right? In that case computer sciences will do you just fine. In my university Computer Science was a legit engineering course. There are so many networks in cars now, huge amount of sensors and relays, plus connectivity in cars is a massive thing these days due to smart phones/tablets, you'll be fine going in as a software engineer. It is such a growing segment in the auto industry.
Reading the other posts, it may sound like they're devaluing your degree in computer science, but I know what courses like yours teach. Don't let anyone tell you, your course isn't good enough (make it stand out in CVs and your interviews). You know this better than the rest of us, but Computer Science isn't just about using some software or coding little flash games. Your skill in building and managing robust systems is what sets you out from amateurs, you know the science behind it and can design far better
Sorry Minchy but your analogy was kinda ill-informed. Someone could quite easily say lots of people are are very competent at using cars whether its simply driving different vehicles or repairing and building one from scratch, all without qualifications. Especially as Computer Science is regarded as an engineering course anyway.
