Because of their flexibility, computers are integral to most research and are indispensable in most professional careers. In education they are used for instruction, for learning, and for efficiency. In industry they are revolutionizing businesses, and in science they allow us to simulate a Jupiter fly-by, to design the next generation air-bus, and to investigate the effects of pollutants on the environment.
Computer Science majors learn to develop algorithms and implement programs for a broad range of software systems. Majors in Computer Information Systems, a program offered jointly with Business Administration, study software development for applications in data processing.
