“One major thing I like about Computer Science is its flexibility. You could create anything you imagined. Problem solving is an essential skill in this field and Computer Scientists get to put their passion into their work, while helping the society with new technology. Studying Computer Science at Nile has benefited me greatly, most especially in the area of web programming— I can now sit and build a website from scratch and also debug at a certain level.”
