Why Study Computer Science?

Over the past 30 years, computing has dramatically changed almost every aspect of life. Data is collected and processed at a scale no one would have been able to imagine 50 years ago, and information is available everywhere thanks to a combination of servers, the Internet, and mobile technologies. Entertainment is totally different than in the past, with games, computer generated special effects, and content delivery fundamentally changing how people spend free time.
