(computer science)
The study of computers and computing, including computer hardware, software, programming, networking, database systems, information technology, interactive systems, and security.

computer science

The field of computer hardware and software. It includes systems analysis & design, application and system software design, programming and datacenter operations. For young students, the emphasis is typically on learning a programming language or running a computer with little attention to the study of information and its uses. In order to better deal with business information requirements, students must also be introduced to data administration and database concepts. See information management, information system and IT.
