Computer science is an exciting, growing, challenging field that is critical to many aspects of everyday life. You can make an impact on the advancement of medicine, clean energy, entertainment, communication for the disabled, climate research, and automotive technologies to name a few. For some, the most motivational aspect of being a computer scientist is being involved in creating the next great technology that will help people the world over.
Advances in areas such as the World Wide Web, robotics, video games, multicore computing, artificial intelligence, and cyber security are obviously central to the discipline of computer science, and other fields such as genetics, atomic physics, renewable energy, and health care depend upon computers for advancement as well.

Computer scientists are highly sought after and can attain lucrative jobs directly out of college. Graduates often begin their careers doing computer programming, which is a creative process that spans a wide range of areas of expertise and is heavily influenced by the application for which the programs or software is being developed. With the Bachelor of Science degree, students are prepared for graduate study or careers in industry as systems analysts and/or designers.
