What is Computer Science and Software Engineering?

Computer scientists and software engineers design and develop software for the computer systems and networks that power today’s world. Whether you’re keeping up with friends on social media, streaming a movie, making a purchase with your debit card or driving your car, you are depending on software. Software enables most of the social, economic and governmental systems that we rely on every day. From personal apps to life-critical software that powers medical, flight and space systems, today’s society requires software that is engineered for demanding performance, reliability and safety standards. Engineering such software requires a high degree of specialization. The individuals with the critical expertise to do this are computer scientists and software engineers. It’s these professionals who make the magic happen every day.
