Hello guys,
I was wondering, does it make a huge difference if you do, MEng instead of Bsc for Computer science? I heard, in most Uni's Bsc and Meng are the same, for most part of first 3 years, is it true?

Does doing MEng give you advantage in hunting for a job? Apparently most Computer science graduates only have Bcs, so what is the point in MEng?

Thanks for your time,
Shadow

Yes. Typically an MEng (4 year course) is respected better than a BSc/BEng (3 year course), all other factors being equal.

I have just completed the MEng Computer Science and I would DEFINATLY advise you to go for it, every single person from my course walked straight into a good job whereas people who just graduated with the bachelors found it alot harder.

But is there a large difference in Course Content?

I know this is laregly specific to each uni; but would there be a lot more maths/harder maths involved?

If you don't mind me asking, could you tell us which uni you went and what grade you got ( 70% +/ 60% etc)
Thankyou very much for your help

At Bristol the first 3 years are the same, except that the MEng people do a group project in 3rd year rather than an individual one. The 4th year modules are a bit harder, but not massively so. The final year project is a bit different though. For the MEng project we also had to do a business plan along side it which was worth half as much as the main part of the project (so together they count for half the year marks).
