Program Description

Computer science deals with the theory of computation, the design of computers, and the study of automating algorithmic processes.  It studies the theory, experimentation, and engineering that form the basis for the design and use of computers.  Computer science involves programming as a tool for problem-solving, but it goes well beyond this.  A good comprehension of computer science helps the student design better programs and understand how to use a computer to solve new problems and to understand complex systems.
