Need Advice Switching Field from ME to CS

Hello Everyone!

I would try to quickly give background of myself before asking my concerns.
I did my B. Tech. in Mechanical Engineering with a percentage of 82% (toppers is 86%). I am working as software professional (SAP Basis Consultant) for a MNC since 1 year. I am looking forward to pursue MS in CS or MIS in USA, not because I am bad in ME (I secured reasonably good rank in GATE), but because I have had a passion for computers since childhood and heard it is easier to get a job in this field in USA.

My concern - is it wise to change my field?
If yes, I am confused to choose between MS in CS or MIS, since I am not very much interested in management stuff but MIS is would lighter in subject which I believe would be easier for somebody who is switching career like me. Also, I always had a passion for doing some research work. And, I am not sure how my undergrad degree would affect this.
Will I get good universities for my profile?

Thanks for reading,
Please try to provide your valuable insight on my situation, would really appreciate it.

Additional Info on my profile:
-I am yet to write GRE (preparing now with intention to give in december).
-My skill set in computers includes:
-Database Administration, Unix Administration, SAP Application Administration
-Little experience in coding in C, Core Java & Python
-Little experience in shell scripting
- Also, I am targeting for spring 2019(is it a good time to go?)
