- About Plattsburgh
The term “computer science” is often used to refer to all the areas of computing, together. Computer science evolved through the consolidation and extension of concepts, phenomena, and philosophies originally associated with other disciplines, such as mathematics, electrical engineering, physics, linguistics, and even psychology and philosophy. Computer science is the study of algorithms and information, and the use of algorithms and information in the solution of problems. This includes the study of data and information in numeric, symbolic, and graphical forms. It involves algorithms for the interpretation, transformation, communication, and organization of information.
The following areas are covered by majors and minors offered by the Computer Science Department, or in cooperation with other departments.
