No the two are different.

Computer engineeringtechnology programs prepare people to help engineers design and build computer systems. Students learn to install and maintain equipment. They also learn to write and test software programs.



Computer science programs prepare people to work with computing problems and solutions. Students learn computer systems design. They study software and hardware design. They also learn to profile the needs of specific end-user situations.

Computer engineers embed computers in other machines and systems, build networks to transfer data, and develop ways to make computers, faster, smaller, and more capable. Computer engineers are improving the ability of computers to "see" and "think." They are making computers more mobile, and even incorporating computers into fabrics, clothes, and building materials.

Information Technology is all about to store, process, retrieve, transmit, and protect the information in digital world. It teaches people about the collection, organization, and use of information. Students learn about computer data storage and processing. They learn about systems planning and design. They also learn to develop databases that meet user needs.

Information technology programs prepare people to design computer systems. Students learn about computer hardware, software, and networking. They learn to create easy-to-use system designs.

The information technology industry has turned out to be a huge employer of people worldwide, as the focus shifts in some nations including India from manufacturing to service industries. It is a field where the barrier to entry is generally much lower than that of manufacturing.

In the recent years, the job market in IT industry has taken a huge leap and therefore most Computer Engineering students are also going for IT jobs, but still the two remains separate.
