Hi, I'm a first year undergraduate student studying computing. I am not sure which unit for specialise in. Only started programming this September so am very new to both choices. Would greatly appreciate any advice, previous experience in either units or current students opinion. Thank you

I would suggest you to go trough each of the module specification, and see what will you study. You could also do some online courses in particular module, so you'll see if you like it or not.

Presumably, on Software Engineering you'll learn several programming languages, a bit of maths, bit of database, UX/UI design, software testing, and maybe project management. With this course, you can mainly become a programmer, mobile app/web developer, UI designer etc.

While on Forensic Computing, you'll mainly learn about forensics, networking, databases and a bit of programming, and laws & regulations about data protection.
With this course you can become an information security analyst, Security System Analyst, or even an ethical hacker. These roles usually pays more than regular programming jobs.

Which one would you enjoy the most working in?
