Computer Science Transitions From Elective to Requirement

Computer Science Transitions From Elective to Requirement | Computer Science Major | Scoop.it

"Earning a college degree often involves completing a list of general education requirements. Aimed at turning out well-rounded graduates, the mandated curriculum can include groups of courses from a variety of disciplines—literature, philosophy, social and physical sciences, history, and foreign languages. As we continue on a track where technology powers everything from our toothbrushes to our textbooks, should computer science be added to the list?"

John Hyo Jin Youn's insight:

This article shows the increasing importance of computer science. This creates more jobs and opportunities for me because this is the field of my interest. However, with the more and more popularity, this article help me realize that this field will be extremely competitive. Meaning that in college, I will have to work even harder to get a spot on the few jobs that are offered in Washington.

Sorting and searching at the library - algorithms from computer science

Sorting and searching at the library - algorithms from computer science | Computer Science Major | Scoop.it

Jason Orendorff:

[...]"searching and sorting, two fundamental aspects of data processing, and what the library has to teach us about them."

 

[...] "the library is doing things that are recongizable as algorithms from computer science. But not the obvious textbook algorithms! I guess when an algorithm is going to take up a human being’s time, it tends to get optimized. These algorithms seem to be tuned very well indeed. But perhaps if you looked inside any organization you’d find something similar.

I wanted to share this because thinking about these things gave me just a slightly different perspective on programming. I just gave the library two hours a week this summer, as a volunteer, putting books on the shelves, and it turned out to be unexpectedly rewarding."

John Hyo Jin Youn's insight:

In the future, I wish to attend to University of Washington with a Computer Science Major. This article shows a unique way to describe the major.Much of computer science is organization and creating complex programs based on very simple ideas. Just like how we look for a book at the library, computer science in much like using the data you know to create new things.

College admission procedures are tiresome and the application process is competitive the personal statement is a vital part of this process, although school grades and GPA are considered, it is mostly not the only criteria for selection as all students usually have same qualify

John Hyo Jin Youn's insight:

When applying to the University of Washington, the personal statement essay is a big part in getting into the school. The Personal Statement is a section for your GPA and test scores doesn't matter. This is a way to show colleges what I do passed just school and how I contribute to my community. I need to make sure that my essay is strong.
