Well, the difference is not really huge. CSE (Computer Science & Engineering) and IT (Information technology) both are quite similar in some or the other manner. We always have come across students who are confused between these two fields because of the lack of the understanding of the minute differences and similarities between the two engineering streams.
Considering these points, let’s discuss the difference between both these engineering fields:
Students only have to think about their interest and then select the field. And generally for placements or higher studies, preference is given to a student from CSE background as compared to IT. This is because a student from CSE is presumed to be familiar with all concepts of subjects offered in IT but the same cannot be said for a student of IT.
