What should I consider to choose whether to study computer science or software engineering?
I want to program and develop software, applications, websites, video games. I would like to work in a company already fixed but independently develop and create my own things. #computer #technology #computer-software #software-engineering #software #science
Having said that, software engineering sounds closer to what you are saying you want to do. Computer Science is much more theoretical and involves developing new ways of computing, or systems that do things differently than they are done today. Software Engineering teaches much more practical skills in developing and delivering software. The attached article may help you further.
Hope that helps.

Best of luck! I don't think you can go wrong with either choice.

Looks like you are interested in developing software applications. Software Engineering would be the best choice if you want to understand the life cycle of the applications which includes requirement gathering, design, development, and testing.
However, if you want to get specialized in a particular area like Game development (for video games) then the best choice is computer science.
I wish you good luck!!
