Harness the power of computing

As a computer scientist, you will explore how computing and computers can be used to solve problems and perform tasks more efficiently. Computer scientists apply their knowledge in ways that enable us to explore space, make purchases with our smartphones, compose music, communicate via the internet, deploy robots in manufacturing, and improve health care. There are few aspects of life today that can’t benefit from the creative problem-solving insights of computer scientists.
