    I hope you're trying a little bit of lipstick and blusher too to help you get all dolled up....I'm sure the suspenders would suit you perfectly, especially with your gender and all...gosh the perfect outfit for any superhero.!

    No no; computing is not the same as compusci at Secondry OR University level.

    Computing is the use of software tools, such as desktop publishing (Microsoft Office) atc. It is the use of pre-existing tools to get a job done, and at Degree level a lot less useful because these "tools" change so fast you'll be spending most of your time relearning in years to ocme if you want to go into the technical side of computing.

    Computer Science, on the other hand, gets to the very bottom line of computing. Machine Code (010101011110), Operating systems, OS to Machine Code translators, Logic, Logic Gates, Logic programming, how CPUs work, how data is transported accross a motherboard, artificial intellegence. BUT at Uni level, you will find most Unis offer a coupel of modules in Computer Science which relate to things like Graphic design.
    No offense, but as BossLady said, that is completely wrong. One main reason why Imperial calls it Computing is because it is an BEng and not a BSci. As a result, this course goes even *more* into the core stuff. You learn how to design a 32-bit computer, several languages including Java, C++, Haskell and Prolog, Assembler (as close to machine code as you can get); can take courses in advanced AI, graphics (with a LOT of math) and study Object-Oriented software design. To add the the 'engineering' you have a whole lot of mathematics, logic and statistics modules supporting hardware courses tossed in for good measure. You even learn how compilers work in their inner mechanics.

    Sound like Microsoft Paint to you?

    I think think he is confusing "Computing" with "IT".
