Computer Science is an exciting field that explores the limits of what computers can accomplish. It also spans many restraints and sectors of our economy, including science and research, industry, business and military. Coursework can include implementing and understanding properties of algorithms as well as discussing the social content of computing.  This includes the history and evolution of machines, social impact of computers, and the code of ethics.  A computer scientist can expect to enjoy a good salary, steady work, and opportunities to advance. Students in the computer science program should be ones that enjoy math, science, problem solving as well as new challenges.
