I got accepted to both but I can't decide on one? How are the courses different? Which one involves more memorization vs intuition. I'm not good with memorization. Easier? Harder? Better for jobs in the future?

I'm in computer engineering. In my university it's literally most of CS (minus some classes) with most of EE (electrical engineering) (minus some classes) and all the math you need to get a minor in math (minus a single class).

The biggest difference is the EE classes and you take more math.

>>18013791
go into electrical engineering, or computer engineering

it's worth a lot more money and you learn a lot more too

people talk about EE/CE being "math heavy" but after calculus, you only need linear algebra, multivariate calculus, and differential equations.

that's like 1/5th of the math that a math major studies. in other words it's not that math heavy at all.

>memorization
neither major is focused on memorizing facts, but rather, understanding concepts. if you try to "memorize" your way through either, you will struggle greatly

Will there be as many jobs for engineering as there is for comp sci?
>>
>comp sci
Software end

>comp eng
Hardware end

>software eng
Only software development stuff I think

I personally went with comp sci. I'm not interested in working an assembly line soldering microchips. I'd rather program or something.

Sorry anon but pic is related?

If so don bober.
