Hey guys I'm currently deciding which universities I want to put down on my UCAS form. I really need to decide ASAP.
I'm pretty sure I want to computer science, it really interests me.
Though I'm doing a BTEC that's worth around 3 A-levels, or so I'm told. It seems easier than A levels so I don't mind that the requirements are normally more for universities.
ANyways more to the point, I was wondering is there any difference between a BEng or a BSc? I've read it's mostly just a title, so would it not matter really when I leave university? As in would some jobs prefer a BSc over a BEng and why?
P.S. At the university of Hertfordshire the professor told me on the open day that with my predicted 3 distinctions if I were to go there I should look into doing a MEng that they offer there, is it worth the extra year?
So like, would a masters from a lesser university be worth more than a bachelor's from a way better university?
P.P.S. Do you think with predicted three distinctions in a computing BTEC that I'd stand a chance at getting into Edinburgh university? It's 7:15am in the morning so I can't phone them right now.
BEng, BSc ... maybe MEng/MSc Watch

Well, if you want to be a chartered engineer then the academic requirements are that you have a masters level of education or equivalent so it makes sense to do an MEng in that case.
Just check on the status of your course with the Engineering Council to see if it a recognised engineering qualification or not:
