Computer Science

The study of computer science encompasses such areas as algorithms and data structures, the analysis and design of programming languages, computer architecture and organization, computer networks and distributed processing, operating systems, systems analysis, software methodology, database management, and artificial intelligence. In each of these areas, significant theoretical considerations come together with practical concerns of design and implantation to gain a deep and useful understanding.
