Computer Science




Sincethe invention of a computer in early 19th century, the machine hasbecome one of the integral in almost every aspect of human life.Today, the uses of the computer are diverse, from communication toconducting researches, and the machine remains an important one inour lives. The computer came with related technological developmentas well as new disciplines into human life (Lamport, 2015). Theincrease in demand for computers led to the increase for expertise towork with the machine and in turn the inception of computer science.Computer science has become an integral part of our life with itbeing used to shape almost every aspect within people ranging fromthe things around us to the way people do communicate, work and eventravel. This essay focuses on computer science as an integral part oftoday’s life.

Ina simple definition, computer science can be referred as the study ofthe principles as well as the uses of the computers, and entailstheory and practice part of a computer (Franklin, 2015). Since thecomputer revolution began the computer science has been the basisbehind this revolution. It has in turn become an integral part oftoday’s innovations within many fields, and in turn becoming andever relevant discipline. It is in turn can be said to a powerfulforce that is making positive or relevant differences globally(Lamport, 2015). When an individual is taking a course in computerscience, he/she is simply undertaking the science and practicalaspects approach the aspects of applications and computations.

Thedevelopment of careers within the Discipline comesalong with numerous benefits. One is that computer science has broadand varying applications. This is due to the fact that, differentcareers are based on computer science, such as computer systemengineering, network systems, database administrator, web developer,programming, software application, and computer system analyst amongmany other careers which can be formed from the computer science(Hoonlor, 2013). In addition to careers developed in computerscience, there are different applications of computer scienceknowledge, such as the development of programs, solving problems,communication among other applications (Bullynck, 2015). Computerscience has been termed as the basis of technological revolution, aswell as the growth development of artificial knowledge.

Studentsopt to major in computer science due to different reasons. Computerscience has become part of other disciplines such as medicine,education, law, life sciences among others. The demand for graduateswell versed with computer science continues to grow, hence more andmore application of computer science knowledge (Kumar &amp Kalil,2015). In order for one to be a successful computer scientist,he/she is supposed to have a passion for searching solutions inaddition to possessing an ability to use logical rigor andmathematics analysis to find solutions (Franklin, 2015).

Inconclusion, computer science has become one of the most marketable,and applicable courses in the modern times. As man continues to adopttechnology and specifically the use of a computer, computer sciencewill remain applicable, and play an integral part in the people’slives. Despite its short history as an academic discipline, thecomputer has to a large extent made a number of key and importantcontributions to society and science at large. In summary, it can besaid that computer science is a field of unbounded potential whichwill continue changing the world, how man relates to man,environment, communicates, works, and other aspects.
