The Computer Science major focuses on the study of the computer itself ? how it is built, how the hardware and software works, and how to program the computer to achieve a task. The typical computer science application involves writing large programs using traditional programming languages and focusing on software architecture, data structures, and algorithm development issues. By learning the theory behind the machine and the programming of the machine, students strive to improve the hardware efficiency and build better applications, which the IT professional would help his/her clients adopt and use successfully.
