Message of computer science department
In today’s society, the role of computers has changed the way one interacts with one another. The computer was first created in the 1600s and simply referred to a person who carried out calculations or computations. It wasn’t until the 20th century that the computer took its role in society that it has now. Although the computer has brought good to the world, it has hindered the way people interact with one another on a day to day basis. At this rate the computer could make man obsolete. Society has built up this technological item to be the new thing and now there is no stopping it.
Computer has been playing a dominant role in the socio-economic development of a nation and by the passage of time this role will become more important.
