Computing science (CS) spans the range from theory through programming to cutting-edge development of computing solutions. Computer science offers a foundation that permits graduates to adapt to new technologies and new ideas. The work of computer scientists falls into three categories:
a) designing and building software;
b) developing effective ways to solve computing problems, such as storing information in databases, sending data over networks or providing new approaches to security problems; and
c) devising new and better ways of using computers and addressing particular challenges in areas such as artificial intelligence. Most computer science programs require some mathematical background.
A major in Computing Science equips the students with essential knowledge and skills set to face head-on many challenges in both IT industry as well as academia. Career prospects include but is not limited to:
- Systems analyst
- Database developer
- Network administrator
