Help with studying computer science

  1. Jun 14, 2016 #1
    I want to become computer expert in all aspects
    I know programming
    I study Electrical Engineering in university and I love computers
    I want to know computers in basic level
    If I want to learn basic about computers what work should I do?
    between data structures , operating system , computer networks and other lessons what order should read?
    and what topic from math should read?
    I almost know list of lessons but don't know exactly order for study them
    I need professional full description smile2.gif

    Does your university's computer science department or program not publish a required or recommended sequence of courses, and the topics that they cover?

    If your university doesn't do this, I'm sure many universities do, so browse a few university web sites and you should get a pretty good idea. :smile:

    Provided that you have gone through at least one programming course, this would be the appropriate order:

    1. Data structures
    2. Computer architecture
    3. Networking or operating systems (order doesn't matter for these)

    Discrete math is most useful for computer science.

    You should follow jtbell's advice and look at the courses for your computer science subjects.

    They should have courses on the topics you have spoken about.
