Computer Science in Science

Leveraging computational power to discover new scientific relationships

If you enjoy asking questions and learning about the world around you, a career merging computer science and science might be a great fit. Data collection and processing, recognizing patterns, automating tasks and detecting signals are all examples of ways computer science can improve the scientific process. Computer science allows scientists to use programming for anything from predicting earthquakes to researching and tracking ocean mammals.

Make Real World Connections

Hear from people who use their programming skills and knowledge to advance the field of Science and how the industry is changing today.

The algorithms that recognize earthquakes, determine their location, and estimate when a nearby community will experience shaking, must be automated.
