Computer Science involves the study of the storage, transformation and transfer of information

It includes both the theoretical study of algorithms and the practical problems involved in implementing them using the currently available technology. Computer Science can be considered a starting point for learners to continue further education and study in ICT or engineering as well as a preparation for learners in a vast range of careers that require efficient and effective use of ICT. Predicted ICT skills shortages, both within Australia and globally, point to the need for highly qualified professionals who have followed a computing career path and have skills far beyond ICT literacy. In addition, ICT is seen as a major driver of economic growth and productivity through its capacity to enhance efficiency and innovation.
