Improvements in genetics, communication technologies, medical care, and environmental monitoring have been made possible by Computer Science.
A computer scientist innovates by studying what and how computation can solve problems and improve society. Computer scientists discover new ideas, implement these ideas in technology, and build systems to make this technology useful for people. The technology we take for granted today (internet, cell phones, embedded devices) were discovered, implemented, and refined by computer scientists. As a future computer scientist, your creativity could produce the next major technology or use technology to remake the world.
