    you mean computer engineers vs IT'ers?

    these are just titels and are open for interpretation. IT is filled with those.... only to have a nice ring to it.

    Computer Engineers vs IT'ers... What seems the different between them because in my school...one of the professor said that Engineers are much versatile than IT'ers, because computer engineers can deal with softwares and hardwares...

    really?

    it = information technology. a computer is hardware and an engineer is someone that invents/puzzles stuff.

    I'm sure your professor was refering to the contents of the education and not so much the name of it as I said before. titles in information technology are a joke.

    Pretty much.

    IT = networks, security, company computer management, computer problem fixing. These people have pretty easy jobs, they don't require that much work most of the time and most of the stuff can be automated.

    Computer Science = Programming, developing, math, logic. This is more rewarding if you're interested in utilizing your brain all the time. But it's crucial to go into business for yourself if you become a computer engineer, because writing code all day for something you don't own, for mediocre pay will kill you inside.

    Again, There is no better, everyone will give you a different explanation. look at the contents not the title.

    Still not sure what you mean.
    IT, as mentioned by others is Information Technology, which is a vast field of work. Computer Engineers are a part of IT.

    Engineering computers and hardware is part of information technology. I have no idea what OP's question means.

    LOL now I understand why you are asking such question. List the subjects in both the courses and also tell us what you dream to become. Let us help you out choosing one of the courses.

    P.S> In the real world, Computer Science is a part of Information Technology. Get it...

    They may be two separate courses in a specific college, but they're not separate areas. Computer Engineering is one of the fields of IT. I would assume that IT is a more general course, while Computer Engineering is specific to hardware/software interfacing and design.

    Each university names their courses anyway they want, so IT may be a course specific to Internet Trolling for all I know.

    I quoted this because of the students in my school told me this...
    The only thing i answered is ""I failed in some subjects in exam, but my friend passed in all. Now he is an engineer in Microsoft and I am the owner of Microsoft." <-- bill gates..."

    in computer engineering you mainly deal with software part whereas in IT you will have knowledge of both software and hardware including networking etc. which is not taught in computer engineering

    Its actually reverse in India,

    in CSE (Computer Science Engg) you have to study from microprocessers to all programming languages,
    while in
    ITE(IT Engg) you get to study only theory related to softwares.
