Computer Science is a rapidly changing and exciting field. Its impact on our lives is evidenced by all the ways computers are used, from word processing to complex scientific computation to managing large amounts of data in business. It is the job of the computer scientist to study the theory, abstraction and design of computers and the software used on computers to make all these various applications possible and reliable. The beauty of computer science comes from the applications it supports as well as the intricate and developing theory of its own.
