Information and Communication Technology (ICT) is part of almost everything you do from the car you drive to the movies you watch to the cell phone you use. It drives innovation in almost every area of your life. Computing professionals are the creative people who are responsible for many of these innovations. That means career options in computer science are limited only by your imagination.

Through a mix of theory and practical experience, you will learn the fundamentals of computer science, including how to design and build software, how to develop effective ways to solve problems, and how to create new and better ways of using computers.
