Please my fellow nairalanders I wan't to know the difference between computer science and computer engineering. Because I'm actually in a dilemma at this very moment. I don't really know which to go for when furthering my schooling.

greatnaija01:


searching for answers, you should go to GOOGLE, not nairaland.... the response time of google is faster and you will get unemotional answers that are straight to the point.


See, if you are trying to study any of these two in a NIGERIAN STATE/FEDERAL UNIVERSITY pls travel there first and meet students from those department/faculties and they will SHOW YOU THE BITTER TRUTH.

I wish you well.

Thanks, I really appreciate

Engineering is almost about computer hardwares while science is about software...

But both of them are scam.

Some computer science students can't even operate a computer.

Go for computer science, don't waste your time with engineering..both honestly have no value currently in Nigeria.

While you're at it learn MS and Linux systems on your own and try your hands on computer networking, programming and database development(SQL), see which one you'll like to dabble with in the future.

Good luck.

computer science deals with soft ware while computer engineering deals with hard ware.

Re: Computer Science And Computer Engineering: What Are The Differences? by Nobody: 5:54am On Oct 07, 2019
Computer Engineering is a specialised aspect of Electrical/Electronics engineering. It focuses on the engineering of computer hardwares and how it interacts with computer softwares where as computer science is about the softwares basically..i.e. software design and operation.

Computer Science vs Computer Engineering. ... Both majors are heavy in theory and practical application, which is vital for building a strong knowledge base for a range of IT careers, however, the key difference is that computer science focuses on software, while computer engineering is more about the hardware.

No! In this day and age 2 out of 5 people can operate a computer to its barest minimum but what about a computer engineering student that can't even fix a RAM to the motherboard let alone build a PC
Or a computer science student that can't even write a Basic programme.
You really don't need to go to a university to be a computer science or engineering expert and that's the truth but there are thousands of professional courses that give good certifications and recognition it just takes time and extreme dedication.
If you really do need the degree then go to Private University.
My friend why don't you go for Information technology or Data management courses, because Data is now the new gold ask Facebook and Google.

Computer Engineering is defined as the discipline that embodies the science and technology of design, construction, implementation, and maintenance of software and hardware components of modern computing systems and computer-controlled equipment.

Computer Science is the study of both computable and non-computable algorithms.

I will advise the science option because no facility for the engineering aspect in Nigeria. We only have them as Technicians and technologists if they eventually want to be in that field.
