    Question CS vs software engo

    Hey guys,
    As per the title, what do you think is a better degree to do? I've heard that cs is more theory based and not as practical based as software engineering. I was thinking of doing a commerce double degree with either cs or software but nah I'm kinda lost.
    Thanks

    You can see the subject difference in the handbook. There's very little difference. It comes down to if you want to 100% be locked into a seng thesis, do seng workshops (which I've been told are average at best).

    Do comp sci, especially since you want to do a double. It's more flexible. Notice the 5.5 years vs 4 years.

    Tech companies don't care which one you do.

    edit: oops btw this reply is specific to unsw, also go to unsw for computing
