    Computer scientists, loosely speaking, focus more on computation itself. They deal with questions about what is theoretically computable, what optimisations are possible, that type of thing. Software development is often more practical, dealing with questions like can we get this working well enough, with the resources available, and when. Though it all overlaps a lot, they are different things.

    You know there are so many possibilities on stuff that you can study that I would say what separates a technician from a computer scientist is a technician worries about using programs in creative ways while a scientist worries more about building the programs and protocols for the technician. A technician usually writes scripts and stuff to perform tasks more easily. Final thought is a Computer Techniaican is high level a Computer Scientist is low level
