What is really feel that the great different between the information technologians and the computer science is that the computer science people will only concentrate more on the programming side but the IT professionals had to concentrate more on the previous things that the particular need for developing the software and how we will communicate to the clients through what media etc...Then the major part the IT professional will do is that the professional will collect all the information that is needed for developing a particular software and moreover he or she has to find out about new ideas in providing the software effectively to the client

there is a great difference between both the terms Computer science is something beyond reasoning and information technology is beyond any reason

In my own view, Information Technology focuses  on the side of application systems, they are the one's who are integrated with the use of the systems which were developed. Although computer science people are equipped in developing a system (experts on programming), I.T. people are also trained to be programmer but only the basic (introduction) in order for them to be aware on the tools used in developing such system.

By then I.T. people are confident enough to conceptualize a project because of his/her knowledge on the tools that will be used in a corporate world. Now, I.T. professionals does not only gather information but also the one's who ANALYZE the problems and formulate solution that would cater the needs of it's clients.

But, as I had observed, nowadays computer professionals must be multi-tasking, we should be skilled enough, if not, at lest knowledgeable on the tools that are in demand today.

Information technology deals with  analysis of Information Systems on how we can communicate, on how information will be available, on how to secure system and set difference IT strategy.
while Computer Science deals with Programming,databases and networks of the computer.
All in all Computer Science in the Subset of Information Technology, because information technologist should also knows programming

Computer Science is the study of computers. You typically learn about hardware and operating systems. Things like registers, multitasking kernels, data buses, address buses. It's real techy stuff.

Information Technology is the more about the study of the use of computers to solve human / business problems. You study some programming, databases, applications, etc... It's still tech stuff, but not at the lower level that CS is at.

These probably aren't complete correct descriptions, but I think you can get the idea.

Computer Science is the science of computers whilst Information Technology may or may not be use computers or any form of computer science to do its evil deeds. Of course there is a big overlap but in general computer science handles the technical working of computers whilst IT is concerned more with information manipulation and the business requirements.

I think that computer scince is concerned with the principles an the concepts that are behined the emergence of IT. In other words, CS is acadimic studying of the S/W and H/W concepts but IT may have specific purposes to be studied.

From a very broad perspective, Computer Science is the study of the principles of computing. It helps you better understand how computers solve problems, what are the kinds of problems that a computer can solve and how one would present a problem to a computer. Abstract ideas that rely on fundamental mathematical theories are at the heart of Computer Science. Information Technology is the study of technology that drives Information Systems for businesses. Understanding what technology/tools can best meet the Information management needs of an organization is at the heart of IT. Familiarity with such tools is an essential for a successful IT professional. The interesting relation between the 2 fields lies in the fact that more often than not, it is Computer Scientists that design and develop these tools that an IT professional uses. Personally, I think that an adaptable Computer Scientist should not find it difficult to migrate to the field of IT (if he/she chooses to do so) by learning more about the technology that is predominatly used at his/her organization. An IT professional on the other hand, will have to go through a mathmatics/CS training in order to be a good computer scientist. In a nutshell, Computer Science is about understanding generic oncepts,whereas IT is about knowing more facts.

Computer science deals with lower level traditional programming whereas IT professionals work on higher end programming languages to create the applications.

Computer science is a field more closely associated with mathematics, logic, electrical engineering. IT is more towards the usage of applications..like more towards applying the technology.

There is also a field called Information systems which is concerned with delivering information processing systems made with Information Technology professionals.

Whereas Management Information systems deals only with information systems in business.

Computer Science is a subject in general dealing with computer hardware software. IT is a derived subject which is mainly involved in the management of inforamtion using computers.

Both computer science engineers and It engineers develop hardware and software. But the work done by IT engineers are mainly for the management of information.

At the professional level, the computer scientist tends to view computing from the computer's viewpoint. In contrast to the vision of information technology articulated above, the computer scientist tends to build and extend the underlying technology, while the information technologist tends to apply available technology to solve real-world problems for people. The computer scientist tends to be motivated by the computer itself, by how it works under the hood, while the information technologist is motivated by using the computer as a tool to solve problems for people. Another way of describing the difference is that the information technologist identifies a need for technology, which the computer scientist then creates, and which the information technologist finally helps people to use effectively.
At the curricular level, information technology differs from computer science in many respects. First, there is a stronger emphasis on programming in computer science than in information technology. Information technologists certainly build software applications, and programming is certainly a critical skill in IT, but the style of programming in IT differs from that in Computer Science. The typical IT project involves gluing together available components in high-level environments and providing an accessible interface to the functionality those components provide. The typical computer science application involves writing large programs from scratch using traditional programming languages and focusing on software architecture, data structures and algorithm development issues. Computer science also requires significantly more math and science than information technology, mainly because extending the underlying technology requires a more thorough mathematical foundation than applying that technology. Finally, the computer science curriculum is "deeper" in that there are more required prerequisites for the intermediate and advanced courses in CS. Information technology has a flatter prerequisite structure, which facilitates the transfer of students into IT from other majors.

we can say that computer sceience is a part of information technology. Computer science is study of computer including both hardware and software design,including artificial intelligence and software engineering.
