The difference between Computer Science and IT is that while CSE deals with the design and development of new software and hardware parts of computer, IT aims at designing, developing, implementing and managing computer-based information systems including software applications and computer hardware. When computer and communications technologies are combined, the result is Information Technology, or ‘InfoTech’. You can work in database management, IT, embedded systems, Telecommunication, computer hardware & software implementation & maintenance, multimedia, web designing, gaming, and almost all other industries.TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL, Accenture, Cognizant, Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, Google, Accenture, Cisco, Oracle, Sun Microsystems, Yahoo, Tech Mahindra, & Mahindra Satyam look out for graduates from this stream. It is worthwhile to note that the computer industry has witnessed such phenomenal growth in recent years that IT majors like Infosys & TCS have been the major recruiters across all other branches throughout the engineering colleges in the country. Computer science and engineering graduates are the pillars of the current and emerging information era. Opportunities include pursuing Master of Science Programs in reputed Universities of U.S. and taking up research assignments in Hardware, System Software, Computer Engineering, Multimedia, Networking and Communication areas.
Job opportunities are ever increasing and are varied in nature. System study, analysis, Design and Programming are the inherent phases in Application Development and each one of them provides enormous potential to the Computer Science and engineering graduates to shape their careers. Hi-end profiles include Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Graphic Solutions and Simulations.
