I currently have an unconditional offer for Computer Systems Engineering with Foundation, but I am unsure of whether to to do this course or change to Computer Forensics with Foundation.
I am a mature student, I left school without taking any exams, but have since completed a few courses, (City & Guilds Level 1,2,3 Computer Systems Support, ECDL, HNC Animal Management). I have worked as an administrator, cashier, etc., I also ran my own business for a couple of years as a children's entertainer.
I love working with computers and cannot decide which way to go. Can anyone give me information about both of these courses. Is the easy/difficult, is it interesting/boring, are the job prospects good/bad, what types of jobs, is there a lot of demand for these careers?
Are there any students who have already started either of these courses who can tell me if they enjoyed the modules involved and their own experiences?

I've looked into it a bit and it looks like systems engineering is the vanilla course, with forensic specializing more towards security. Having not done either of the course's myself I can't comment on the job prospects or how interesting they are, but I suppose its the same with any course, if your into computers you *should* be into this. As for job prospects, there's always a market for basic IT technicians if nothing else.
