Computer Science is considered by many of its practitioners to be a foundational science - one which makes other knowledge and achievements possible. The study of computer science involves systematically studying methodical processes (such as algorithms) in order to aid the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information. This is done by analyzing the feasibility; structure, expression, and mechanization of these processes and how they relate to this information. In computer science, the term, `information' refers usually to information that is encoded in bits and bytes in computer memory.
