    I would like to hear your opinions and observations on a definition of what computer science is.

    My opinion is that computer science does not necessarily need to do anything with programming and engineering etc. In my opinion, computer science is the science of understanding machine and general computations and using them in several applicable ways. In simple words, computer science = math science

    Please discuss on what you think should be a definition of computer science.
    Thanks!

    That's a loaded question. There's been big debate as to weather it actually deserves the word science in the title and that maybe mathematics would be a better fit. Also, the barrier between computer science and software engineering is far from concrete.
    In terms of pure education, I'd say it depends on the university/system as there is a large amount of divergence between different institutions as to whether they focus more on engineering or more on the theory relating to the subject.
