Overview

Computer Science is not only about programming or coding, but has many aspects such as human-computer interaction (including virtual and augmented reality), artificial intelligence, cybersecurity, data science, cloud computing, and computer graphics.

The potential of this field to solve problems and make improvements in our lives is limitless. Computer Science is present in everyday life — in Google searches, driving your car, disease detection, or surveying drones to name a few.
