Background of the Study
Many college students nowadays are more intrested in Computer Courses because of the booming information and communications industry. Many companies hire computer technicians and programmers for their high demands. But of all the courses, two major courses are much more outstanding related to this field. Many students think that they are almost the same but they are not. This study aims to differentiate the two known ICT courses – bachelor of computer science and bachelor of science in information technology. They both seem the same and their course contents are also almost similar but there are still differences between computer science and information technology contrary to common beliefs
Information Technology is the mixture and application of Programming, Hardware Administration, Software Administration, Networking, Network Security and Technical Support. In other words, the management of computers’ information technology is the technology required for information processing. In particular the use of electronic computers and computer software to convert, store, protect, process, transmit, and retrieve information from anywhere, anytime.
Computer Science is the mixture and application of Applied Mathematics, Electrical Engineering, and Complexity Theory/Algorithms to understand and/or model information in other words, the field of computation. Computer Science has roots in electrical engineering, mathematics, and linguistics. In the last third of the 20th century computer science emerged as a distinct...
