What is Computer and Information Technology?

In the 21st century, computing technology plays an increasingly important role in every aspect of the society. Computer Science and Information Technology is an emerging field of study with a high scope in the mere future. Technology is needed everywhere, whether in business, education, medicine or in normal day to day routines. This field of study is changing rapidly as technology is changing rapidly, but the core concept of Computer Sciences remains the same. The study of Computer Science and Information Technology provides students with an understanding of fundamental computer science concepts coupled with applied information technology skills to prepare them for careers in computing technology. In addition to the computer science skills and abilities, students gain an understanding of the human side of computing, the social, ethical and global issues related to technology, and the ability to collaborate and communicate effectively through project-based coursework. The field also requires core research to gain insight knowledge about emerging tools and technologies.
