Why Study Computer Science?
From smartphones to autonomous vehicles, the computer-enabled objects around us shape the way we communicate, travel, work and play. Computer scientists, sometimes called computer programmers, are professionals who work closely with software developers and engineers to apply logic, creative thinking and analytical skills to write, test, debug, modify and maintain the codes that computers use to function.
Computer scientists invent the future by developing the architectures, applications and techniques for advanced computing systems. Computer scientists work across all industries, including finance/banking, consulting, manufacturing, health care and medicine, government agencies, automotive, aerospace and education.
