Computer Science / Programming
Computer and information science is more than running application
programs and programming. Rather, it relates to the ways in which computers
represent conceptual objects and how computer systems allow those objects to
interact. Computer and information science is the study of ways of representing
objects and processes. It involves defining problems, analysing and designing
solutions, and developing, testing, and maintaining programs.
Computer and information science education is relevant for all
students because it incorporates a broad range of transferable problem-solving
skills and techniques. It combines logical thinking, creative design,
synthesis, and evaluation, and also teaches generically useful skills in such
areas as communication, time management, organization, and teamwork.
Computer and information science will prepare students for an
increasingly technological world. A foundation in this discipline will
introduce students to the excitement and opportunities afforded by this dynamic
field and will begin to prepare them for careers in information technology.
Computer engineering is an expanding branch of engineering with roots
in both electrical engineering and computer science. It includes the design,
operation, and maintenance of computer hardware and peripherals (printers,
scanners, multimedia devices, and so on). Computer engineers work in every
sector of society and industry designing new products and services. Within the
field of computer engineering there are also a number of specialization
including communications, control systems and software engineering.
Computer engineering education provides a hands-on understanding
of the technology involved in many consumer products and industrial processes.
It also teaches generically useful skills, including communication, time
management, organization, and teamwork.
Ontario high school students can now interact directly with
computer hardware and peripherals and gain a better understanding of the
opportunities that this field presents. A foundation in this discipline will
provide students with an introduction to the excitement and opportunity offered
by computer engineering and will begin to prepare them for careers in computer
hardware and networking.
