Computer Science (CS) is the study of computation and computer technology, hardware, and software, and of the application of computer technology to science, business, and the arts. Computer science includes many subjects including artificial intelligence and software engineering.

Information Technology (IT) includes many areas including computer software, information systems, computer hardware, programming languages, and are not limited to functions such as processes, and data constructs. Any device that renders data, information or perceived knowledge in any visual format whatsoever, through any multimedia distribution mechanism, is considered to be IT. IT provides organizations with four sets of core services to help execute the business strategy: business process automation, providing information, connecting with customers, and productivity tools.
