Computer Science is the systematic study of computers and of the phenomena of computing. Formal properties are given more emphasis than realizations or applications. A major objective of the discipline is the formulation of a systematic body of knowledge to explain these properties. One of the most important concepts of computer science is the management of complexity. Students must understand how abstraction is used to control complexity. As a method of reasoning, computer science bears a strong similarity to mathematics and depends heavily upon mathematics.
