What is Computer Science?
Computer Science is the scientific study of computing devices, the software that drives them, and the computational tasks they are capable of performing. Its applications span the range of human endeavors: the physical, life, and social sciences; the literary, visual, and performing arts; law; government; recreation; and virtually every sector of the commercial world. Study Computer Science and contribute to the future of technology applied across the disciplines! Visit the Association for Computing Machinery (ACM) Computing Careers website for information and resources on the computing field.
