Study the theories, experimentation and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers
Computer scientists work in almost every industry because computing is the glue that holds much of contemporary science, technology, commerce and entertainment together.
With a computer science degree, you can pursue a wide spectrum of roles – you could develop software, applications or websites. You could design, maintain or protect computer systems. Or you could focus on data – how to store, organize and derive value from it.
