Hi. I like technology and computers very much but I am looking for something with more hardware than software. I don't like maths that much. I am not sure is Computer Systems Engineering or Computer Engineering good for me ? I think that better fits me than ordinary computer science ?

Thank you

When you say you are interested in hardware, do you mean Electronics? Something to bear in mind is that a degree in electronics doesn't entail much plugging of PCI cards or soldering components onto bread board. It is very theoretical although you will do practical sessions, but these will be more akin to what you might do in the physics lab. Make sure you go to a few open days to find out exactly what will be entailed.

Electronics is fine but I would like to work mostly with computers and stuff like that....Not sure about electronics but I'm looking for something where I can study not only computer software but hardware too, or at least something where I have an option to choose between the two. That why I mentioned computer system engineering (there I saw hardware written on the programme and something like "for people that like to look inside the box") I think that would fit me better than ordinary computer science.
thanks
