    No.

    Computer science - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Computer science (abbreviated CS or CompSci) is the scientific and practical approach to computation and its applications. It is the systematic study of the feasibility, structure, expression, and mechanization of the methodical processes (or algorithms) that underlie the acquisition, representation, processing, storage, communication of, and access to information, whether such information is encoded in bits and bytes in a computer memory or transcribed engines and protein structures in a human cell.[1] A computer scientistspecializes in the theory of computation and the design of computational systems.
    Information technology - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    Information technology (IT) is the application of computers and telecommunications equipment to store, retrieve, transmit and manipulate data,[1] often in the context of a business or other enterprise.[2] The term is commonly used as a synonym for computers and computer networks, but it also encompasses other information distribution technologies such as television and telephones. Severalindustries are associated with information technology, such as computer hardware, software, electronics, semiconductors, internet,telecom equipment, e-commerce and computer services.
    IT is about how computers and networks allow business to use information. Largely the application of commercially available software to business.

    CS is about how computers are organized and programmed and the study of how to compute using computers.
