Grace Hopper’s field of study is computer science. A computerscientist works on different computers. Computer scientists not only work oncomputers they also program and code all kinds of different computers too. Computerscientists also, get computers to work right and function right. Computerscientists also study the uses of computers and the principles of computers. Youcan be a softwareengineer, programmer, systems analyst, systems or network administrator, webdeveloper, and database administrator if you have a major in computer scienceand many more.
(What Computer Scientists Do Computer scientists alsojust work on computers in general. The impact of computer scientists. Computerprogrammers and coders program codes for all kinds of computers. The impact ofcomputer scientists are huge. The impact is so huge because we use computersevery day.
Computer science has helped to improve communication. Computerscience has helped improve communication because of programs like Skype to helpyou stay connected and able to communicate to your friends, co-workers, bosses,and many other people too. Computer science has also, solved problems andimproved solutions.
Computer science has helped solve problems and improvesolutions because of things like Uber and Airbnb and other apps. Furthermore,computer science has helped to furthering education. Computer science hashelped education by having online classes for college and some other schools. Computerscience has also, helped protect people and organizations. Computer science hashelped protect people and organizations by programs like life lock and manyother safety programs.
