What Is Computer Science?
Computer science is a very young discipline. Electronic computers were initially
developed in the 1940's. Those who worked with computers in the 1940's and
1950's often did so by teaching themselves about computers because at that
time most schools did not offer any instruction in computer science. However,
as early pioneers in computers learned more about their machines, a collection
of principles began to evolve into the disciple we now call "computer science".
Because it emerged from the efforts of people using computers in a variety of
disciplines, the influence of these disciplines can often be seen in computer science.
Computer Science can now be found on the campus of most major universities and colleges
as well as, most high school campus.
