Computer science designates the scientific and mathematical approach in computing.  Computer science is structured in 2 part Theoretical computer science and applied computer science. For me computer science it’s much harder than IT. You will need to know lots of math, algorithm, and other exact sciences. IT is the science that deals with everyday computer tasks, like software and hardware so it’s best suited for everybody. IT stands for Internet Technology, and as the name already says it deals with internet problems as well as any other computer related problems or bugs.

At first the syllabus for both stream will differ according to the college you opt. Some basic difference is listed out below.

The curriculum of computer science will be more theoretical than IT it includes more maths, logics, algorithm etc. It concerned with developing new ideas for computer systems, and provide mathematical concepts of computation and information.

On the other hand IT curriculum typically includes more practical applications. It concerned with implementing solutions to practical problems using current technologies. 

But students of both stream will be aware of the basics of each streams. In short  Computer Science is more scientific and IT is more technical.

The choice of opting the stream is up to the taste of candidates. Some one more interested in maths, logics etc can select Computer science if you are more interested in practical applications you can definitely choose IT.

The job demand is more or less same for both streams.
