Which would he enjoy doing most?

by NickNielsen In reply to Computer Science Vs. Info ...

Supporting existing applications and equipment (the Information Technology curriculum) or designing applications and equipment (the Computer Science curriculum).

Does he want to be a technician or an artist?

what he want is to enjoy computer but he want too to join or to study something which will giv him the ability to do the other one.

That may not be possible

by NickNielsen In reply to Which would he enjoy doin ...

The IT curriculum has a business/software support/project management orientation. The Computer Science program is more an engineering program.

Which is he better suited for?

by NickNielsen In reply to wat is ur advice then??

I can't recommend one or the other for him since I don't know him. Since I'm not familiar with the economy there, I can't recommend one over the other as paying more. All I can do is point out the apparent differences in the two programs based on the course selection and allow you and him to discuss the options.

If he is personable and works well with customers/clients, he may be better at the IT curriculum. If he has a good basis in math and the sciences and is a logical thinker, he may be better at the CS curriculum.

doesnt matter

by ismokedubs In reply to Which is he better suited ...

have him pick the one that interests him the most, make sure its an accredited college, get good grades, and get a good job. I graduated in MIS but now configure cisco routers so either doesnt matter, most job sites that want a degree state either CIS or MIS.
