Computer Science vs Software Engineering

What is the difference between computer science and Software Engineering ?  

This is the question which asked by every student before going to enter in engineering. Here is the quick overview  between software engineering and computer science.

What is Computer Science ? 

In computer science the student cover the core concepts and technologies involved with how to make  computer do something. The basic focus of computer science is understanding the problem,  designing and  developing program which will be compatible with other computers and technologies. The computer science is mostly deal with  algorithms. Computer science not only take part in contribution by programmatically but also provide the solution of networking, space  technology and in databases in both ways  ( software and hardware.) The Most accurate definition of computer science is that '
"computer science tends to be oriented towards more theoretical or mathematical problems. "

Fields of Computer Science 

The Computer science's engineer can perform their role in the following fields after the degree

  • Software Developer
  • Database Administrator 
  • Computer Hardware Engineer
  • Computer network Architect
  • Information Security Analyst
  • Web Developer
  • Computer Programmers
  • Computer and Information System Manager
  • Project Manager
  • Computer System Analyst

What is software engineering ?

Software Engineering Field Software engineers design and develop software. They apply the theories and principles of computer science and mathematical analysis to create, test, and evaluate the software applications and systems that make computers work. The tasks performed by these workers evolve quickly, reflecting changes in technology and new areas of specialization, as well as the changing practices of employers. Software engineers design and develop many types of software, including computer games, business applications, operating systems, network control systems, and middle ware. They must be experts in the theory of computing systems, the structure of software, and the nature and limitations of hardware to ensure that the underlying systems will work properly.Software engineering provide the end solution to the end users. The algorithms which gave us by computer science is finally got a programming shape in software engineering. The software engineering also deal with designing and the coding process or programming of that design is in this phase. Now the rapid application development is growing so fast and the IT life cycle is just 3 months so now software engineering become more popular. Now developers just make a design for their understanding and also start working on coding on the other hand to deliver their products on the time in market.The most accurate definition of  software engineering is;
"The application of a systematic, disciplined, quantifiable approach to the development, operation, and maintenance of software"

Field of Software Engineering 

The Software Engineers can perform their role in the following fields after the degree

  • Computer Programmer
  • Web Developer
  • web master
  • SEO Exert
  • System Engineer
  • Project Manager
  • System Security Manager
  • Ethical Hacker
  • What should I chose ?

What Should I Choose ?

Computer science and software engineering are the world best engineering fields. Both have their own scope and uses in the development process. Being a software engineer I suggest you this because SE provide you many to start your career without the dependency of office Job.
