I love to code. I believe everything is programmed in a certain way to make it work. From human brains to every single command in the machines.

Computer science involves analytics, science, and a fair amount of mathematics. Software engineering does not require computer science. It has to do with the development of software, which is a collection of data or instructions telling the computer to work.
The program doesn't have anything to do with the hardware of the computer itself. Computer software includes computer programs, and it is a program that processes machine language and graphics. This program runs through the central processing unit. Most software today is written in a high-level programming language.
Computer science bridges a range of topics from theoretical studies of algorithms and the limitations of computation to the practical problems of implementing computing systems in hardware and software. There are four areas considered to be crucial to the discipline of computer science.
These include the theory of computation, algorithms, and data structures, programming methodology and languages, and computer elements and architecture. CNAB also identifies fields such as software engineering, artificial intelligence, computer networking and communication, database systems, parallel computations, distributed computations, human-computer interaction, computer graphics, operating systems, and numerical and symbolic computation. Computer science is the technical and practical approach to calculation, and it's applications.
Computers can be seen in almost every field of work. However, there are some fields or jobs that have a limited need or access for computers. Most of the jobs like accountants, air traffic controllers, teachers, nurses, doctors, vets and architects use computers in some capacity by either inserting data into their computer systems or extracting information from the computer systems.
A few careers do not need computers or computer systems in order to complete all of the tasks for that career. However, some careers have a very limited impact from computers and computer science. These include acting. The actress or actor would spend their time practicing on stage. Therefore, performance fields would most likely not need computer science because computers are not needed in this field.
