    What's the difference?
    How does the university courses differ?
    Does each give you different pathways into careers?

    Thanks for all help


    Computer science engineering is fully about computer design.. It will teach you about the processing of computer, components, how they developed etc..

    Software Engineering is about the designing of software programs.. How to develop a software program, testing, technologies and techniques about programming will be handled in SE..

    CS requires Maths,physics and chemistry and SE doesn't require maths and science..

    Both will fall under "Computer Science Degree"... If you are interested in computer hardware and designing and also maths then you can with CS.. If not then go with SE.. Many universities and colleges offers both courses with good career opportunities.

    Depends where it's taught; some places the courses are very similar. True computer science is generally much more maths heavy, although the best thing is to check with the places you're looking at going to.
