what is computer science and information technology
What is Computer Science and Information Technology?
  • The study of computers and the systems built around computers.
  • Development of programs to control these systems, and work on applications that use computers.
  • Computer applications solve problems across all of society, and computer scientists work with all aspects of these applications
what will you learn studying computer science and information technology
What will You Learn Studying Computer Science and Information Technology?
  • All the basics of computer science
    • Hardware and software components
    • Programming and algorithms
    • Databases, operating systems, and network administration
