What is computer engineering and computer science?

  • Now, you have an idea of what is computer engineering, hopefully. Since you are looking at this computer blog, I guess you know what computer science is. Without further ado, the comparison between IT and computer engineering must begin.

    Computer science focuses solely on the theory and application of computation. It is usually focused on the most abstract ideas and focuses on how the math should work and so on.

    Computer engineering uses aspects of computer science and electrical engineering to solve problems. This is the most "practical" option. It focuses more on concrete ideas, such as how things actually work.

    Basically, if you are more interested in the theory and application of this theory, IT is your choice. If you are more interested in building things and applying everything you learn in a practical setting, computer engineering is your choice.
