Computer science or computing science (CS) is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation. It includes practical techniques for their implementation and application in computer systems. Computer scientists invent algorithmic processes that create, describe, and transform information and formulate suitable abstractions to design and model complex systems.

Students can complete 'core courses' in computer science from this department. There is no diploma or official recognition - this is simply an opportunity to follow a similar learning path to a traditional college Computer Science program.

Many courses are in need of further development, and our pool of contributors only post sporadically (due to living real-world lives). If you find a resource that needs help please consider lending a hand - see the Help Page to learn more.
