The course content differs from college to college. I would like to share this based on my experience at NITK Surathkal. Over here the course content for both the branch was almost the same. Although the CS @ NITK had few courses that focused more on hardware. But placements record was almost the same for both the branches. Hence I would say if you are passionate about technology and want to make it your career don’t worry much about the difference between CS /IT, just follow you dream and work hard – rest all will fall into place itself.
Best of luck!!
This may not apply to all colleges, but generally Information Technology mainly deals with the software side and Computer science course deals with both software and hardware.
Don’t worry much about the difference for now, no company is going to deny interview because of the difference between CS or IT. Just follow your heart and do what you like..
If you take a deeper look, per Robert Half Technology, they are quite different with CS dealing more with technical side of computer information systems such as programming & coding. IT deals on the side of implementing and the problem solving of it and what to do with the data the programming tools the CS person actually wrote! I am in graduate school studying IT Mgmt side of the equation, I possess no will to set & write code for programs but rather utilize the proge

IT is a part of Computer Science , which deals with the study of the various technologies that are in use.
Computer Science is a core field of study in which you can also pursue research as well
IT is the derived field which provides education regarding the technologies that have been already introduced and implemented.
In my opinion CS definitely has the edge because of wider range of opportunities and job available .
Demand for both CS and IT is evergreen so you can opt for any of these courses. 🙂
