Example of a computer system

 

Computing science is vital to everyday life — socially, technologically and economically; it shapes the world in which we live and its future.  Computing is embedded in the world around us, from systems and devices in our homes and places of work, to how we access education, entertainment, transportation and communication.  Understanding computational processes and thinking is also vital to many other fields, including science, economics, business and industry.  While many learners will want to become computing professionals, all will benefit from the development of these foundational skills and the underpinning knowledge necessary to meet the needs of society today and for the future.
