Computer Science and Engineering is the most popular courses among the engineering students because of the job opportunity on large scale in this field. It is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. It is the methodical, orderly and systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical procedures (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information, whether such information is encoded as bits in a computer memory or transcribed in genes and protein structures in a biological cell.
The students of Computer Science focus on the theory of computation and the design of computational systems. Its subfields can be separated into a variety of theoretical and practical disciplines. Some fields, such as computational complexity theory (which explores the fundamental properties of Computational and intractable problems) are highly intellectual, while fields such as computer graphics emphasize real-world visual applications. Still other fields focus on the challenges in implementing computation. Computer Science engineering is the study of design, implementation, and management of information system of both software and hardware processes.
Information Technology deals with the use of computers and computer software to convert, store, protect process, convey, and regain information, Computer Science is a scientific and practical method to computation and its applications. 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 put together, the result is Information Technology, or ‘InfoTech’. A computer scientist concentrates on the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.
Computer Engineers can work in database management, IT, embedded systems, Telecommunication, computer hardware & software implementation & maintenance, multimedia, web designing, gaming, and almost all other industries in this sector. It is useful to note that the computer industry has experienced 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 candidates can find job with TCS, Infosys, Wipro, HCL, Accenture, Cognizant, Microsoft, IBM, Adobe, Google, Accenture, Cisco, Oracle, Sun, Microsystems, Yahoo, Tech, Mahindra, Mahindra, and Satyam. You can get a minimum salary package of 9-10 Lakh annually.
