**Re: Why do UTS call their degree Computing Science? and difference between CS Program**

In the early days of the formative period of the body of studies associated with the use of computers (in the early 1960s), much of the applications was in the area of computation (calculations). So many early courses included a course in Numerical Analysis - concerned with the numerical solution of differential equations, etc. In high school maths, you have the Trapezoidal Rule, Simpson's Method and Newton'S Method - all these are elementary examples of Numerical Analysis. Hence Computing Science.

In any new branch of study, a number of alternative terms are proposed by various pioneers in the field. As the field evolves, certain terms become more popular and become adopted. 50 years ago, you have ADP (Automatic Data Processing), then EDP (Electronic Data Processing) and eventually these terms lost their usage until now you have IT.
