Computer science is essentially an expansion of Computing. Both will focus on broadly similar subject areas, however a Computer Science course will (or at least should) provide a deeper understanding of the theory behind the practical Computing applications. For example a Computing course will (in most cases) contain some programming element. This will likely include the Syntax and some limited Semantics of a given language. Whereas a Computer Science course will cover the same material but also focus on areas such as Encapsulation, Polymorphism, Design Methods and Design Patterns. In essence a Computing course will tell you what to do, a Computer Science course will tell you what to do and why to do it. Jimbobbery Not neccessarily. I have studied computing to HND level. I have used procedural and OOP techniques and have become familiar with encapsulation, polymorphism and all sorts of design principles like UML and SSADM. I think you are undermining Computing as a subject. They are 2 of the same, with computer science maybe slightly more weighted to theory rather than practice.

The difference between computer studies and computer science is in the aspects that they focus on. In simple form, computer studies look at the computer hardware while computer science if inclined towards the software.

Computer science isa science which give knoweledge to us.but the computer programing is a program that we are created to operate computer.that is the difference between the computer science and computer programming.

computer science and computer engineering mostly overlap each other. The basic difference is that computer science mostly deals with computer software and computer engineering mostly deals with computer hardware.

IT or ICT as it is now called is more business related skills usually office programs like spreadsheets (excel). Computing the the Science of computers and more to do with how the computer hardware works and how these programs (windows and office) are made.

You don't get a degree with a subject; you get a degree in a subject. Bachelor of Science in Computer Science or Bachelor of Computer Science are common descriptions of this degree.

in my view computer science is study of making new softwares, or programming etc. on the other hand computer studies is knowledge of softwares

Scientific computing play crucial rules in any field. In modern era, data is growing and new method arising for grid computing or telecommunication etc. They method needs computing power. Then scientific computing comes and play important rule in computer science.http://www.csd.cs.cmu.edu/research/areas/scicomp/

Generally, a computer science program that emphasizes mathematics will be more theoretically rigorous. A computer science program that does not emphasize mathematics will be more pragmatically rigorous. Which is better is the subject of much debate.

Computer science is a more abstract study of computing techniques; which will include computer programming. Computer programming, as it implies, is the practise of writing programs for computers.

A computer engineer is someone who makes computers and associated things that go with them, such as printers. Computer science jobs involves codes and such.

IT - is largely concerned with business use of computer technology. Chose this if you have a business interest. CS/Computing - is largely concerned with the science side of computing. Chose this if you're mathematically adept. And don't forget Software Engineering - if your interest is programming then that's the one I'd recommend.

Bachelor of Computer Science is a type of bachelor's degree, usually awarded after three years of collegiate study in computer science. In general Computer Science degrees emphasize the mathematical and theoretical foundations of computing. A Bachelor of Computer Science degree is normally required in order to work in the field of software development. Both are better, and both are of 3 years. It just the name of degree, nothing much difference in which is better and not.

computer science and engineering branch is focusing on 1.Programming aspects 2.concentrates on mathematical aspects of computer engineering 3.Interested in exposing the preliminaries of computing and software development 4.Few aspects of computer networks Information Technology focuses on 1.more Electronic background of computing 2.more S/w development aspects 3.more communication aspects in short CSE-Literature of computing and networks IT-Literature of Communication
