IT vs Computer science

In their most basic terms, Computer science and Information Technology may not have any difference when being referred to in general and for a good reason, a lot of people do take them to mean more or less the same thing. However, speaking in strict computing terms, there is indeed a difference between the two terms.

Computer science refers to the processes used to create usable computer programs and applications together with all theory behind those processes. Information technology on the other hand refers to the application of computer programs to solve business processes. It is the application of technology in business. Information technology is very vast in terms of scale because it is applied virtually to any type of process that may require automation, from business, scientific research to the music industry, telecoms and banking.

The two terms may also differ depending on school or college, where in some schools they may use one term to refer to a course that combines IT and Computer science modules. In schools that are more engineering based, they use the computer science term as an umbrella term for all theory relating to information technology. In such cases they normally use the term ‘computer engineering’ to refer to the process of creating computer programs, both at system level and application level.

In almost all schools, computer science courses involve learning about computer programming which involves learning the basics of programming methodology, data structures, algorithms, complexity theory all the way down to learning what makes an operating system work, although at computer science level, low level programming is not usually looked at in detail as it is dealt with in computer engineering courses.

Well My Friend First of  all I am giving you short introduction of mine. I am last year Computer Engineering Student going to complete my B.E. in June-2010. and certified .NET & JAVA Programmer.

Regarding the syllabus wise there is difference like IT Engineering students are having many management subjects in their curriculum but not core computer subjects like TOC,Compiler,System Programming,ACAP,MP,AMP.......while Computer Engineering students are having these core subjects but not management subject.

IT Industries need both IT ENGG. and Computer ENGG.

They usually learn same technology like JAVA,J2ME,J2EE,.NET,SAP,ERP,WML etc.

So my friend you have interest in computers then you can select any of them.

For any query or doubts you can mail me at way2harshil@way2sms.com
