What is Computer Science?
One of the newest and fastest developing areas of human knowledge, computer science deals with the design of computers, and with the investigation of their limitations, as well as the analysis, design and development of software systems that these machines execute. Today, software is being used to automate almost every aspect of our daily life. Therefore, skilled computer scientists are needed in all industries and organizations. Computer scientists are trained in the theory of computation and the design of computer systems. The computer science discipline is associated to mathematics and includes topics ranging from theoretical (such as studies of the limits of computation) to practical (such as issues of implementing computing systems).
