IT and CSE are only 5 subject difference.College from which u graduate matters a lot initially to get into a company.

CS is more specific to computers, hardwares,softwares etc...IT is a vast subject..includes managment stuff and bits of everything from computers to mobiles to softwares etc. I am doing CS and prefer CS.

AFAIK CS students get better placement than IT.

This happens when all other constraints [ GPA mostly ] is the same.

You should take IT in a good college rather than CSE in an average one.

And Yes they are ALMOST The same , only different by a few subjects , the important ones are same.
 
For all practical purposes CSE = IT. The same companies (even the top companies like Microsoft, Google and Amazon) hire from both branches. Subjects - engineering subjects in India in 90% of the colleges are only good enough for the degree. And the difference in the subjects between CSE and IT is some subjects you study earlier in IT others from CSE will be elective and some other small variations that shouldn't matter from a career point of view.

Being from a good college gives you ONE advantage (and this is really important) - you have better companies coming for campus placements. And campus placements is 10 times easier to clear than off-campus placements.

So whether it is Computer Science, Information Technology or Information Science (in karnataka colleges) you are in for the same thing. Go to the college that has better placements in any of these branches.

EDIT: And don't believe this CGPA bull$hit. You only need enough CGPA to sit in the interview room (the cut off varies though from company to company and from college to college). After that its your own talent that takes you forward, not the marks on your report card.

Apparently some government organisations have ther requirement as "CSE". Either they consider IT = CSE or they don't consider IT.
Should be the former but considering how dumb they are won't be surprised with the latter. In spite of that one shouldn't rely on goverment job hopes and get admission in a shite college. CS jobs in government are too few, and too far in between anyway.

And oh a better college should be the choice, no matter what. But then it should depend how better it is. If colleges are equivalent, CSE should be preferred over IT generally "to remain safe in Yindan context."

from the company perspective, CSE and IT are almost same. eg, There were two 56 lpa from my college this year, one from CSE and other from IT. So if you are good, CSE and IT are equivalent for you.

poor little me
c.s.e and it are both same .

according to My experience of placement.In past i also used to think what to choose but don't worry they are both same except you will find more dumb students in It then cs .

so take decision based on college.

Hey if you really don't want to pursue your career in MBA then join B.tech. After B.tech you can also get a job..:lol:
