Computer Science is the study of information and computation of algorithms, data and computing systems which accept, store, transform and present data in ways that contribute to knowledge and the well-being of society.
In the Computer Science major you will learn the underlying principles and theory used in developing computational solutions to problems including a study of data structures, algorithms, and programming languages and their use in translating solutions into software systems. Within the Computer Science major, you can choose to specialise in modern fields of computer science and software development, including artificial intelligence, computational theory, computer systems, human-centric computing, and information-intensive computing.
By completing the major, you will develop a deep understanding of software development, software systems or computer science theory, with many applications to fields in Science or further studies in Computer Science. There are also excellent career opportunities for graduates with these backgrounds in business, industry and government as programmers, systems analysts, computer systems and network managers, user support officers and software engineers.
