System Analysts help companies solve computer problems,
maximize their benefits from buying computer equipment and hiring personnel,
and planning and implementing new computer systems. They need to know how to
utilize techniques like structured analysis, data modeling, information
engineering, mathematical model building, sampling, and cost accounting. To
become a System Analyst you should earn a bachelors degree in Computer
Science. If you were to complete the University of Central Florida's Computer
Science program you would be required to take Calculus with Analytical Geometry
I and II, Statistical Methods, Physics for Engineers and Scientists I and II,
and Discrete Structures I and II. In 2000 most System Analysts earned between
$46,980 and $73,210 a year and worked for data processing services, the
government, manufacturers of electronic equipment, insurance companies,
financial institutions, and universities.
