The field of Computer Science

Computer science is a field where you study all about system software which includes the theory, design, development and application of it.The ultimate gripe of computer science is to know–in detail–how computers and computer systems work. Building on the knowledge helps us to understand how we can build and program computer systems to do as we wish. They’re also concerned with how computers store, process and interact with people and computers. With the advancement in software engineering, the key areas of study within Computer Science are artificial intelligence, systems and networks, security, bioinformatics and various other aspects of human computer interaction.
