Computer Science

Computer Science is concerned with how:

  • Computers are designed
  • Computers work
  • Computer systems work
  • Computers are programmed

Computer science allows us to solve problems, design systems and understand the power and limits of human and machine intelligence.
It is a skill that empowers and that everyone should be aware of and have some competence in.
Anyone who can think computationally is better able to conceptualise and understand computer-based technology, and so are better equipped to function in modern society.
