Computer Science is an exciting, growing and challenging field which impacts almost every aspect of our lives. Medicine, pharmacology, communications, entertainment, automobiles, weather forecasting, mining, manufacturing, forensics, disaster recovery, security, law and business are just a sample of the vast application areas of computer technologies. It would be hard to find some aspect of life that has not benefited from applications of computer science. And what is even more amazing is that what awaits to be done is far greater than what has already been accomplished, and you can be involved in making what is dreamed of today into reality and impact the world and make it a better place.
