What is Computer Science?

Computer Science is the scientific study of computing, designing, creating and inventing new technologies.

Do you think the inside of a computer as an entirely unique ecosystem? Do you think of computing as a language in itself? Do you think of algorithms and data structures as logic and proof? Most importantly, do you know the difference between a computer scientist and a programmer? If you do, then perhaps computer science may be the course for you.

Do you think the inside of a computer as an entirely unique ecosystem? Do you think of computing as a language in itself? Do you think of algorithms and data structures as logic and proof? Most importantly, do you know the difference between a computer scientist and a programmer? If you do, then perhaps computer science may be the course for you.

Computer science is a broad subject and it covers anything from software development all the way to hardware development and anything in between. You will learn the science of computation, which includes foundational concepts like algorithms and data structures; logic and proof; computational complexity; models of computation, architecture, principles of operating system, and programming language design and implementation. The goal of a computer science degree is to teach you how to think computationally and to give you a solid core, so that as the field changes (and it will change), you are prepared to adapt.

How does your education pathway look like?

What skills do you need for a Computer Science course?

Good with Computers

Being the best player in League of Legends won’t count for much here, unless you know your stuff, such as how a computer functions, algorithms, data processes, you know the complicated but fun stuff!

Versatile

You need to be ready to dabble in a variety of subjects, and master various kinds of computer languages. It’s almost as if you’re going to a new country, except it’s all done virtually. You’ll need to adapt to the ever-changing world of tech.

Creative

As the world progresses further, the importance of utilising these new advancements in a new and innovate way is critical. You’ll need to use the tech already available to improve current technologies as well as birth new ones based on the existing ones.
