Computer Science is a subject that covers a large spectrum of applications and specialisations. Computer scientists not only design software but they solve all sort of computing problems and develop different ways to use technology to solve problems that the society faces. A fundamental requirement for Computer Scientists is “computational thinking” which involves looking at a problem and working out a way a computerised system might be able to help you solve it.
