This is the title of a paper by Jill Courte and Cathy Bishop-Clark from Miami University which appeared in the 2009 SIGCSE Technical Symposium on Computer Science Education. The main thrust of the paper is a study to determine how well students differentiate between the five major computing disciplines Computer Science (CS), Information Technology (IT), Information Systems (IS), Computer Engineering (CE), and Software Engineering (SE). About 370 full and part-time students at several institutions majoring in both computing and non-computing disciplines were surveyed. About 50 of these students worked fulltime in computing and other areas. The details of the study can be found in the paper. Authors encourage people to read the entire paper.
