i have finished my bachelor Mechanical engineering degree and i am thinking of doing a degree incomputing like network management or something like that question is do i still have to do 4 year? i heard you can do 2 or 3 year?

whats the different between Bsc and Beng for computer science? should i get Beng since i already done a degree in engineering?

i only got a 2-2 on my degree but will that affect my chance of getting a place or will it help?

Unfortunately Edinburgh Uni will not accept a 2:2 from any degree type into its sciences course's. 2:2 shows you only averaged less than 58%. You will be lucky if you even manage entry into any other course at Edinburgh regardless of it being a science course. Science and Engineering courses are hard to differentiate between when it comes to some universities I.e glasgow cally science courses are a joke however a a bEng from heriot watt carrys alot of weight.

You would typically move into a 1 year MSc in Informatics but with your 2.ii you won't be able to do that. Moreover, you won't be able to apply to undergraduate programmes like computing if you are a degree holder. What you should do is shop around to see if there are any MSc conversion programmes that will take people with a 2.ii.
