Introduction to
Computer Science

Marie Yvette B. de Robles
The core areas of computer science, including
software engineering
,
graphics
,
networks
,
databases
,
multimedia
and
artificial intelligence
remain strong today.
you typically start with a software engineering job after a Bachelor's and move on into higher-level positions.
What's interesting about
computer science?
Interest usually begins with programming and mastering the many details and thought processes involved in programming
Computer Science
What exactly is Computer Science?
What are hot topics in Computer Science today?
What kinds of careers are open to me with a degree in Computer Science?
software?
programming?
Computer Science is the science of using computers to solve problems. Mostly, this involves designing
software
(computer programs) and addressing
fundamental scientific questions
about the
nature of computation
but also involves many aspects of hardware and architecting the large computer systems that form the infrastructure of commercial and government enterprises.
Is Computer Science
mostly programming?
FAR FROM IT. Initially, it may seem that it is all about programming because it is the skill whose teaching we start with.
What
Computer Science
is not...

Computer Science is
not
about using software, such as spreadsheets (like Excel), word processors (like Word) or image tools (like Photoshop).
It is not about expertise in computer games, it is
not
about about writing content in websites, and it is
not
about assembling computers or knowing which computers are best buys.
