Aloha! Welcome to UH Hilo Computer Science and Engineering Department
Computer science is not the science of the computer–it is the science of problem-solving using a computer. Because computers are so pervasive, a computer science degree gives you the opportunity to make an impact in the world of science, business, health care, education, the law, art, entertainment, or almost anything else that interests you. Even if you are not a computer science major, taking computer science courses will improve your logical thinking and problem solving skills.
