What is computer science1

What is Computer Science?

  • Computer science (CS) spans the range from theory through programming to cutting-edge development of computing solutions.

  • The work of computer scientists falls into three categories:

    • designing and building software

    • developing effective ways to solve computing problems, such as storing information in databases, sending data over networks or providing new approaches to security problems

    • devising new and better ways of using computers and addressing particular challenges in areas such as robotics, computer vision, or digital forensics

  • Most computer science programs require some mathematical background.
