Transcript of Introduction to Computer Science
Marie Yvette B. de Robles
The core areas of computer science, including
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
Interest usually begins with programming and mastering the many details and thought processes involved in programming
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?
Computer Science is the science of using computers to solve problems. Mostly, this involves designing
(computer programs) and addressing
fundamental scientific questions
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
FAR FROM IT. Initially, it may seem that it is all about programming because it is the skill whose teaching we start with.
Computer Science is
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
about about writing content in websites, and it is
about assembling computers or knowing which computers are best buys.
"Computer Science is no more about computers than Astronomy is about telescopes"
Edsger Wybe Dijkstra
Are there careers in Computer Science that involve people-skills, or will I be staring at a screen all day?
Computer science is unlike many other disciplines in that there is a large intersection with other fields.

I listen and I forget;
I see and I remember;
I do and I understand.
