Computer science is a dynamic field that offers the intellectual challenge and satisfaction of constructing complex software systems. And no matter what the future holds, a deep understanding of computer technology will always be useful in our “wired society.” As one of our former students put it,“Computer Science is certainly an exciting field to be in because of the constant technological changes. UNH prepares you for that.”
