BS in Computer Science

Why Major in Computer Science?

Computer Science asks the question: What sort of problems can be solved by a computer? In this sense it is a mathematical science. As such, it unites some of the most interesting aspects of mathematical problem solving with the exciting possibilities raised by the computational power of the computer. Career opportunities for graduates abound in fields ranging from artificial intelligence to software applications development and the field will only grow.

“What the telescope is to the astronomer, the computer is to the computer scientist. Like the telescope, the computer is a means by which new universes of interesting problems are revealed.”
