1 Introduction to Computer Science What is this course all about? Well, it actually could be regarded as a Computer Science course. By now you may have learned something about Information Systems, Human Factors and Operations Research. So you might ask, how do these Industrial Engineering topics relate to Computer Science? Lets turn to Wikipedia: “Computer science or computing science (abbreviated CS) is the study of the theoretical foundations of information and computation and of practical techniques for their implemen- tation and application in computer systems. Computer scientists invent algorithmic pro- cesses that create, describe, and transform information and formulate suitable abstractions to model complex systems.” To get a better idea of what is involved let’s list all the fields within CS, and pay some attention to the ones shown in bold which are also very relevant to IE. 1.
