Computer Science and Information Technology (CS & IT) encompasses a variety of topics that relates to computation and applications of computing like, development of algorithms, analysis of algorithms, programming languages, software design, computer hardware, e-commerce, business information technology, Data Analytics, Machine Learning, Block Chain Technology, Augmented Virtual Reality, Mobile Application Development, IoT, Wireless Sensor network, Web Technology.
Computer Science and Information Technology (CS & IT) has roots in Electrical Engineering, Mathematics, and Linguistics. In the past Computer Science and information science were taught as part of mathematics or engineering departments and in the last 3 decades they are emerged as separate engineering fields. In the present information era (Knowledge era), the Computer Science and information technology program will see an exponential growth as the future machines work on artificial intelligence.
The oldest known complex computing device, called the Antikythera mechanism, dates back to 87 B.C., to calculate astronomical positions and help Greeks navigate through the seas. Computing took another leap in 1843, when English mathematician Ada Lovelace wrote the first computer algorithm, in collaboration with Charles Babbage, who devised a theory of the first programmable computer. But the modern computing-machine era began with Alan Turing’s conception of the Turing Machine and three Bell Labs scientists invention of the transistor, which made modern-style computing possible, and landed them the 1956 Nobel Prize in Physics. For decades, Computing Technology was exclusive to the government and the military; later, academic institutions came online, and Steve Wozniak built the circuit board for Apple-1, making home computing practicable. On the connectivity side, Tim Berners-Lee created the World Wide Web, and Marc Andreessen built a browser, and that’s how we came to live in a world where our glasses can tell us what we’re looking at. With wearable computers, embeddable chips, smart appliances, and other advances in progress and on the horizon, the journey towards building smarter, faster and more capable computers is clearly just beginning.
Computers have become ubiquitous part of modern life, and new applications are introduced every day. The use of computer technologies is also commonplace in all types of organizations, in academia, research, industry, government, private and business organizations. As computers become even more pervasive, the potential for computer-related careers will continue to grow and the career paths in computer-related fields will become more diverse. Since 2001, global information and communication technologies (ICTs) have become more powerful, more accessible, and more widespread. They are now pivotal in enhancing competitiveness, enabling development, and bringing progress to all levels of society.
The career opportunities for computer science and information technology graduates are plenty and growing. Programming and software development, Data Scientists, Data Analysts, information systems operation and management, telecommunications and networking, computer science research, web and Internet, graphics and multimedia, training and support, and computer industry specialists are some of the opportunities the graduates find.
