Is Computing Science considered a Science?
Despite Computing Science having science in its name, Alberta Education does not consider it a science. Thus, common Alberta scholarships like the Alexander Rutherford do not consider it a science. However, majority of post secondary institutions and IB all consider Computing Science a science. Therefore post-secondary undergraduate applications include Computing Science 30 in the same category as Biology 30, Chemistry 30, and Physics 30.
