What is the difference between software engineering and computer science? Which one is easier? Which one has more content and maths? Do you need to be analytical and good at learning languages for both? Thank you

Computer science is more mathematical, software engineering is more related to systems lifecycle and development etc. Computer science degrees will have a software engineering component, just obviously not as much. You'll probably do equal amounts of programming in both, maybe a little more in CS. They both require the same skill set more or less, but software engineering involves more writing and CS involves more discrete maths.

Take the harder degree, not the easier one. Computer Science has more recognition by the way.
