    CS

    It's generally better to have a stronger foundation in the theoretical modules it offers, then mix in any practical work on top + outside of university.

    Software engineering doesn't give you the same underlying depth in the fundamentals. Ultimately, you want your degree to last you a long time and IMO, with CS, that means understanding how things work and not how to do things.. It's much easier to hit the ground running if you get the gist of how algos, complexity, etc works than learning the new best new thing (Agile/SCRUM etc) in software engineering methodology

    Plus, the optional modules are far more interesting in the later years where you might get to do bioinformatics, AI, machine learning, etc etc..
