Computer Science Or Computer Engineering? by smartNerd: 4:43pm On Feb 17
I am not a good writer, please try to understand me.

I wrote WAEC exam not too long ago and am about registering for JAMB this year, am confused on which course i should go for between computer science and computer engineering, a lot of question keep pondering in my mind and as a result I still can't fill in my form which is getting late since i hadn't decided on which course to study.

Shouldn't I had decided this long before now?

well i did, I wanted to study computer science before, just that after I wrote my exam and I decided to conduct research on course I found out how outdated it curriculum is here in Nigeria got me discouraged.

I like IT stuff which is why i still what a course around that field.

The distinction between Computer Science and Computer Engineering is fading away and nowadays you need skills from both sides in the workplace.

Thus my practical advise would be to choose the one that offers you a greater chance of securing admission. You could also decide based on your personal interest - google the courses of study under both majors and see which you're more comfortable with.

Nigerian Universities deliver outdated curricula anyway, particularly for Technology based programs and you'd most likely still have to get professional qualifications to prove your proficiency in your chosen field so your choice of degree ultimately doesn't matter post-graduation, as much as the hands on skills you possess.
