Computer Science (CS) is the body of knowledge centered on the concepts of computation, information, and communication. This includes theories for understanding computing systems and methods. Computation occurs everywhere: your iPod, your car, your immune system, your brain, financial markets, ant colonies, chemical systems, DNA, quantum systems. Computer science is concerned with everything about programs; how to solve problems with them, how to build them, how to classify and analyze them and prove they are correct, how to draw pictures with them, how to get them to learn and much, much more. CS studies these systems and others using three methodologies: engineering (high performance computing, game building), scientific (artificial intelligence, machine learning) and mathematical (cryptography, complexity theory.
