Hello!

Somewhat biased as I am in my final year of Software Engineering at Strathclyde. Software Engineering and Computer Science are nearly identical, with the exception of Software Engineering including taking a year out to work in industry.

I think the main difference between the two universities is their approaches; Glasgow has a somewhat traditional course structure with electives in other faculties, while Strathclyde has a lot of focus on practical work and electives are largely centred around computer science and surrounding disciplines. I've had a great time on the course, and come out of it with a good grad job offer starting in September. Is there anything specific you're interested in knowing? Like I say, I've been here for ~5 years so I'm quite familiar with the course and the uni as a whole.

I'll keep an eye on this thread, but open for DMs as well :smile:
