    "Computer Science at Western has given me a strong foundation both in the practical and theoretical aspects of Computer Science. On several occasions I've been pleasantly surprised to discover that I was exposed to topics that were not covered at other Universities. Even if you are already good with computers, do not under-estimate the value of a CS degree. Knowledge of the fundamentals will only increase your ability to understand problems and innovate."
