What is computer science? You might have heard a lot of things about this interesting field, but I am here to share some facts and general knowledge about this field today.


Computer science is the study of computers and computational systems. Being a computer scientist means being a problem solver, so computer scientists use their unique collection of knowledge and apply it to different things such as designing computational systems. Studying computer science means that you must be able to analyze various problems and design creative solutions for them. Being creative and thinking outside of the box is a great trait to have if you are considering of pursuing this field.


Since computer science is such a versatile field, computer science is used in almost all parts of daily life. For example, computer science is used in medicine, science, government, education, and business. There are also several different topics covered within computer science as well such as artificial intelligence, computer graphics, and software engineering.
