A few decades ago, it would have seemed unbelievable that a day would soon come when computers would be installed in everything from new cars to children’s toys, phones would take pictures and send messages by text, and a social network called Facebook would connect one-twelfth the world’s population. It’s even more impressive to realize that with all we’ve seen, we’re only at the beginning of the age of computers.
Before you can get to the future, however, you have to go back to the beginning: starting with the basic one’s and zero’s of binary code, every function a computer performs is rooted in mathematics. The rigor and curriculum of a computer science / mathematics major is designed to teach you how to trace programming back to its mathematical core. With the knowledge you’ll gain, you’ll be well-equipped to go on to continued study and eventually help design software for the computers, airplanes, biotechnology devices and even spaceships of tomorrow.
