Computing is the driving force for the development and modernization. Apart from the Computing, many other subjects are also equally important and valuable for different sectors and domains. Indian Higher Education is changing rapidly, from the type of educational institutes to number of programs, nature of the programs etc. Traditional knowledge and context of computing education (i.e. from Computer Science) has been shifted over new age programs which are purely international in nature. The affairs of interdisciplinary sciences, also been improved in recent past as far as private universities are concerned. Many things have been changed in private universities regarding the course structures in Computer and Information Science. Though, many more are possible in coming days. This Chapter expressed a possible framework for the development and more progress not only of CS & IT but also the whole world of Computer & Information Sciences. This paper discusses in detail the areas of IT Systems Education in India with respect to Technical, Professional, Research based programs in a conceptual manner.
