Computer Science

Having the skill set of a computer programmer is a superpower: everything is run by computers and it is the programmers who tell them what to do.

But what exactly is computer science? Computer science is the study and development of computer technology.

In today’s marketplace, there are many roads that lead to careers in game development, app creation, web app design, software engineering, information assurance, and cryptography. A computer science degree is the most traditional, but with good reason, since it provides a strong foundation in the fundamentals at the heart of computing. Make no mistake: this is a challenging field, but the possibilities are limitless.
