    From what I understand from this page:

    Computer Science and Computing Science at Staffordshire are different -- Computer being a little more hardware oriented and Computing being more software/IT oriented.

    Although there isn't much difference between BEng and BSc, Eng means the course is accredited by some organisation, which usually means there is some additional content covered (usually about ethics) or some constraints (like you have to have some group project experience). I guess at Staffordshire the honorary is optional; in real life terms it shouldn't make any difference and you'll almost certainly be able to switch between them while you're there.
