What differentiates software engineering from computer science?
What differentiates software engineering from computer science? I’m wondering if it would be best to obtain a bachelors in computer science as opposed to software engineering before pursuing a masters in software engineering. I’ve googled and yahoo-ed the question for information but still haven’t found anything that really answers this question for me. I’m really looking to hear from computer scientist and software engineers in the field. (I am aware that computer scientist can also work as software engineers.) Thanks in advance.

“Computer science” most often means software engineering, but CAN involve some hardware engineering. A bird of a different feather is “Computer engineering,” which definitely means hardware, heavy on electronics, circuit design, solid state devices, etc. I worked as a software engineer for about 6 yrs on the basis of an MS in Applied Math. “Computer engineering” is higher paid, but a software engineer can go far depending really on talent and performance.
