Computer Science is the study of theory, engineering, experimentation that form the basis for the design and effectiveness of computers. It involves heavy study of algorithms and their application in the real world. Computer Science can be defined as the study of automating algorithmic processes that scale.
It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications and the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that is the basis of the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to, information.

There are various subjects that deal specifically with the individual topics and include:
Although the fees vary from university to university, the average tuition cost for master’s studies in Computer Science engineering in the US are $37, 000/year. Average living costs vary upto $8900/year. They are almost the same in Canada. In Australia, average tuition costs are A$40000 / year and the average living costs are A$8,500/year.
