    • Computer scientists possess good programming and algorithmic skills and use them to manipulate data.
    • Computer scientists undergo courses on fundamentals of programming languages,algorithm design,discrete mathematics,theory of computation,software design and development.

    Job Prospects For Computer Scientists:

    • Software Development Engineers
    • Application Developers
    • Web Developers

    Information Technology

    • IT Professionals mainly utilize the software and operating systems to make a larger system to render business solutions.
    • IT Professionals possess critical thinking and analytical skills.IT deals with collecting information and its retrieval.They bridge the gap between software developers and businessmen.They operate on tools designed by computer scientists without knowing their implementation details.
    • IT professionals undergo courses on network architecture,information security,information storage,database management and system analysis and basic programming.

    Job Prospects For IT Professionals:
