AiTLE & William Jessup University : Seminar(s) on “Importance of Computer Science to our Next Generation”

Dates: 10/23/2019 Times: 15:00 - 17:00 Location: Inno Network, 1/F., HKPC, Kowloon Tong, Kowloon

Computing has profoundly changed the world. However, just using a computer is only a small part of the picture. Real empowerment comes when one learns how to program computers, to translate ideas into code. Computer Sciences can also develop skill in problem solving, the ability to formulate problems, think creatively about solutions, and express a solution clearly and accurately.

With the ever changing technology world, knowledge on data mining, programming, software development, or hardware really help our next generation.

The seminar is delighted to have Mr. John Crawford*, Intel Fellow and Computer Science Advisory Board Member of William Jessup University# to share, to give advice and counseling on how to make a great career choice in Computer Science and Technology world at 2019-10-22 (TUE) and 2019-10-23 (WED).
