In our society, computers are everywhere. They process data from banks, communications satellites, video games, and even the fuel and ignition systems of automobiles. Computer software is as commonplace in the areas of education and recreation as it is in science and business.
Every field or profession relies upon computer science for the problem-solving skills and the production expertise required in the efficient processing of information. Computer scientists, therefore, function in a wide variety of roles ranging from pure theory and design to programming and marketing.
Students in our computer science major are introduced to the fundamental principles and mechanisms of modeling, abstraction and problem-solving using computers. The knowledge of these principles, rooted in mathematics, logic and language, prepares students to understand the essence of the science of computing and to continue to adapt to this evolving field.
