Computer Science

Some people are attracted to computer science because they like fiddling with computers. Others enjoy how computers allow people to communicate in new and faster ways. Some see computer science as a gateway to career opportunities.

Computer science is about problem-solving, devising efficient solutions to the puzzles of the world. Computer science is one of the most interdisciplinary fields, connecting to work in the sciences, social sciences, literature, and music, not only in the way computing technology aids those disciplines but also in the way computer science trains the mind for rigorous, logical thinking.
