    Computer Systems = more hardware, more physics, more applied maths

    Comp Sci = more software and more theoretical maths/concepts

    But do you build computers from scratch in Comp engineering?
    Which Uni's would you recommend for Comp systems engineering?

    You could if you wanted to, in say a group project. It's more about the underlying theory behind the hardware components, rather than building computer parts.

    I got an offer from Lancaster last year for the course and when I went down for an applicants day I was veeerry impressed by what I saw, their newly built engineering building is absolutely stunning. Also had a chat with the academics there and they all seemed very down to earth.

    Definitely Lancaster, Manchester, Strathclyde, Bath, QMUL, Sheffield, Loughborough etc.
