Can someone without any programming knowledge go to study computer science?

Another school season came to an end. Next year is the last year of school and after that it's time for university. I have decided to study computer science. Generally I have a good relation with technology and I thought "Why not to develop this in something greater?". It's about a month or more that I started learning languages via SoloLearn. I get some concepts while some others not. I guess I need time. But if someone doesn't know anything about coding or knows a few things can he study without any prob

Sure why not. I got into CS without much programming knowledge, and got my degree because I loved what I studied. All you need is a logical mindset and a somewhat scientific view of programming (being good in physics, math, chemistry and other pure sciences help). Be prepared to work hard because the courses are usually loaded with information, depending on which country you live in. There is a lot of homework to do and being self taught in other languages not offered in the courses will also help.

When you were a kid in the school you learned mathematics without knowledges. If you want, you will be great in everything you do

I think the most important thing is to love your choosen profession or job. In fact it is more important than your initial knowledge or abilities in that area. If you realy have a great desire and passionate about it then you can learn almost anything. And don't forget that programmers never stop learning whole life...

I'm taking computer science as an elective in college because I think an introduction can take me very far even though it may be challenging as a person with very little programming experience prior to it. And I have faced frustration. I'm in the class right now. Generally I study biology and neuroscience so there is some interesting overlap with computer science and artificial intelligence.

Even I have zero knowledge on programming or computer science when I started learning a programming language called C#. But I do enjoy doing so in the end. I even started to learn other language as well. It might be hard for someone who just got into programming or computer science at first. But with passion and interests, I do believe anyone can learn and fully understand computer science. Programming fundamentals is actually a fun syllabus in computer science to learn and it can bring a big impact on your progress towards knowing the whole picture of computer science......

My dear, the university has the task of making us realize our dreams .. You say you do not know how to program .. well the university is just what it does, it teaches us what we want ... in your case "compiuter Science ".. depends on your willpower your success or failure ... good luck, I believe in you ..!

The best professors at my university are ones who never had any programming skills before they entered the world of computer science. Most of them had a master's degree in math and then they went on to do research in computer science. Even I had no or very little programming background before doing engineering in computer science ( all I knew before doing my course was basic and HTML). So I think all you need is to be good at math and logic.

I joined csse department without any knowledge in programming but now I am in my second semester till now I learned two programming languages and I didn't worked hard but just learned them due to passion and I think everyone can if one is interested in it and not only programing will help you but you have to solve a problem in an effective way

it will be better if you ask that c an someone learn programming language without a cs degree. and the answer of your questions why not , anyone one can go for cs if have programming knowledge or not. But only if they love computers. just give more time and do better
