    I know that what the individual course entails is down to the uni you apply to and I have had experience in both fields. I know that I enjoy both programming and hardware development.

    Nevertheless, I just want to know, from a practical point of you, which is more employable and has better job prospectus'? Which field is growing more and which is respected better?

    Thanks in advance

    If you are comparing/contrasting coding and hardware then it would really be a comparison between Software Engineering and EE.

    CompSci is different again, and is more "purely" academic than either SE or EE. (Depending on the uni.)

    Eitherway, only you can really decide what's right for YOU. Check the courses in detail.
