This is a totally valid question and one that I faced as well when I was about to start school. Both these programs would enable you to be a proficient engineer and join/start any company that you desire. What is more important is that you focus on the basics and ensure that you pick up the following skills along the way
- Good understanding of data structures and algorithms
- Basics of software development best practices and methodologies
Both the programs will cover these topics in great detail. From my understanding, IT tends to focus a bit more on just the software side while Computer Engineering has a mix of foundational computer science, hardware and software. You can't go wrong with either choices really.
Just to give you an additional data point, I ended up doing IT :)
