    Hay I wanted to go into computer engineering once I get into uni, but I do not know what coarse to take, to get me in. I just done my first year of A levels and I did not enjoy it, so I am trying a btec instead, would I have better luck getting into CE by Studying IT or Engineering ?

    At the moment I am studying engineering but I was thinking of switching to IT.

    Thank you

    Do electrical engineering btec since it covers mathematics and further mathematics for technician module, computer engineering requires good mathematical ability unlike computer science.

    I am also undecided whether to choose level 3 electrical engineering or IT practioner. At the moment Im not sure whether i want to do Electronic Engineering at Uni, or Computer Science, should I do Electrical engineering since it covers maths?

    Level 3 IT practitioners has a lot of content that is not really relevant to Computer Science. E-commerce and "employability skills" for example are some of the things we've covered in the first half term.

    I've no idea what electrical engineering is like at level 3 so I can't really advise you to go for that, but level 3 IT covers lots of aspects of IT so I guess you'd have more choice for progression when compared to electrical engineering?

    Sorry, that was more of a spiel of useless info than advice :P

    I presume IT will only get you into Computer science, but EE can get you into CS and EE, I think.

    a) Some unis like people to have A-Level maths alongside it so that they have a good enough maths ability
    b) This thread is from 2013
