Computers and other connected devices have a profound influence on how we work, play, shop, and socialize. Wouldn't it be nice to understand how they work, not just from the user's perspective but at a nuts-and-bolts level?
Computer science, information science and technology is all about the theory behind the gadgets. Any degree course will include a thorough treatment of:
- Computer architecture
- Data structures
- Practical mathematics
- Programming, algorithms, and software engineering
- Networking fundamentals
Many students find these subjects more than a little challenging. Those that perform well in their studies and later in the workplace tend to be methodical, detail-orientated, and talented at math.
