Computer Science

Computer Science

Is building video games a career that interests you? Are HTML, JavaScript, PHP, Python and CSS the languages you want to speak? Interested in creating websites or being the frontline warrior in the battle against cyber criminals? Do you see yourself programming robots? Computing and computer technology are part of just about everything that touches our lives from the cars we drive, to the movies we watch, to the ways businesses and governments deal with us. Computer Scientists invent and build solutions. A Computer Scientist is an artist whose canvas may be a smartphone or PC display and whose paints and brushes are programming languages and development environments. Careers in computer science are limitless... can’t imagine a world without Instagram, Snapchat, Facebook, or Twitter? All were created by two to four individuals— some as college students—on the software platform provided by the web. Perhaps, you may be the next innovator!
