Computer Science

Computing functionality is ubiquitous. Today this logic is built into almost any machine you can think of, from home electronics and appliances to motor vehicles, and it governs the infrastructures we depend on daily — telecommunication, public utilities, transportation. Maintaining it all and driving it forward are professionals and researchers in computer science, across disciplines including:

  • Computer Architecture and Computer Organization and Design
  • Data Management, Big Data, Data Warehousing, Data Mining, and Business Intelligence (BI)
  • Human Computer Interaction (HCI), User Experience (UX), User Interface (UI), Interaction Design and Usability
  • Artificial intelligence (AI)
