This is pretty straight forward stuff. Nothing especially technical. We are concerned with the big picture related how systems integrate into organisations and how people use them. I used the standards from the IB<ref>http://www.ibo.org/</ref>, but added some other topics I think fit into this category (but not included by the IB).
Computer science is about understanding the depth of a computer system, we care about how a computer system really works. We use our understanding, skill and knowledge to create programs to solve real problems.
Computer science requires an understanding of the fundamental concepts of computational thinking as well as knowledge of how computers and other digital devices operate.
