Computing is part of everything we do. Understanding different dimensions of computing is part of necessary skill set for an educated person in the 21stCentury.
As a discipline, Compute Science spans a range of topics from theoretical studies of algorithm and the limits of computation to the practical issues of implementing computing system in hardware and software. Computing drives innovation in the sciences and also in engineering, business, entertainment and education. If we want to make a positive difference in the world then we must study computer science/computing.
Computing jobs are among the highest paid and have the highest job satisfaction. Computing is very often associated with innovation and developments in computing tend to drive it. This, in turn, is the key to national/international competitiveness. The possibilities for the future developments are expected to be even greater than they have been in the past.
Creating the high-quality computing solutions is a highly creative activity and computing supports creative work in many other fields. The best solutions in computing exhibit high levels of modishness and magnificence.
Computing is often about being part of a team that requires people with many different kinds of skills. Yet there is also plenty of space for individual talent and imagination. An increasing number of universities and employers see successful completion of a computer science course as a sign of academic well-roundedness.
Computer Science is one of those fields where it is almost impossible to predict what will happen next. This is why we cannot even begin to imagine all the ways that you can make a contribution to it and it can make your life's work exciting and real.
