The study of computing, programming, and computation in correspondence with computer systems. This field of study utilizes theories on how computers work to design, test, and analyze concepts. Computer science usually has a stronger mathematical foundation than a scientific one and on some occasions may not focus directly on computers and their systems
The process of utilizing knowledge and principles to design, build, and analyze objects. Engineering is a necessary element for most items that require construction and has several branches of expertise including civil, electrical, mechanical, and chemical. Some fields have such a high demand for engineering that positions have been formed that solely deal with the engineering aspect of a project.
Health science encompasses a variety of sub-disciplines, all of which relate to the application of science to health. Both traditional, Western and alternative medicine can be considered health sciences. Because humans have always needed to deal with illness, it could be said that health science has existed for as long as humans have. The field includes the study of medicine, nutrition and other health-related issues and the affect they may have on both humans and animals.
