School: University of Toronto – Mississauga
Degree: Bachelor; Honours
Field of Study: Computer and Information Systems Security
Description: Computer science is concerned in the broadest sense with the study of computation and applications of computing. Its development has been stimulated by collaborations with many areas including engineering, the physical and life sciences, mathematics and statistics and commerce. However, computer science is much more than a set of techniques used in these application areas. Computer science as a discipline encompasses a wide range of research areas. For example, “human-computer interaction” is the study of computer usage patterns and the design of interfaces between users and computing systems. “Software engineering” includes both the process of building software and the study of software production as a business. “Systems” (networks, operating systems, databases, compilers) is concerned with the design and analysis of complex computing systems. “Numerical analysis” involves the design, testing, and analysis of numerical methods for solving computational problems in science and engineering. “Cryptography” is the study of the hiding of information. “Theory” encompasses computability — what can and cannot be computed by machines; complexity — the relative effort required to perform various computations; and verification — the formal proof of the correctness of programs.
