What is Computer Science?
Computer Science is fundamental research and engineering at the same time. Therefore, Computer Science is often called a
„Engineering Science of Mind“.
„Doing Computer Science“ is not the same as „programming much“ - not even the same as „working with computers“! Rather, it deals with fundamentally exploring phenomena and methods that form the basis of automatic information processing.
Most computer scientist work application-oriented and interdisciplinary. But abstractions from the particular application and theory construction are always the main focus. To study computer science, you should enjoy (and also have the ability to) mathematical-formal and very precise thinking and working - not only when writing programs!
