Hello guys, I have done some research for uni courses and I hit u-turn where I decided to go for software engineering courses rather than computer science ones. This is because I want to become a mobile app developer or software engineer and I do not want to learn anything extra from computer science. However, I want some debate in this post what are advantages and disadvantages (preferably who has done one of the courses). Thank you!!!!!!!

A computer science degree is much more better and appreciated.

In SE, you mostly learn programming. In CS you learn the theory, algorithm's, data and almost everything required in a Software Engineering job.

Learning the theory of programming will help you understand programming more and you are able to apply the knowledge in your coding stronger.

there's no real difference...both end up in the same place...

If you like or are good at programming, go into any of these. Which ever one you can get into...Try to get into the one which has stricter requirements. That means your class will be of a higher standard, and you might get to learn more in a more challenging environment...be more competitive.

I've found Computer science to contain more science (Physics and maths) and Software engineering to contain software elements from (computing, IT and stuff like that)

Thanks guys, I wish plenty of more people posted, but I have made my final decision to go with SE degree. Since I can not learn and be good at everything.
