Computer Engineering or Computer Science?
Computer Science and Computer Engineering have similar career outcomes, but there is an important difference. Computer Engineers specialize more in designing and building computer hardware, and Computer Scientists focus more on designing and building computer software. The two work together to implement optimized and cyber-secure computing and communication systems that power all aspects of modern life. They are complementary pursuits, and Computer Engineers and Computer Scientists at Lewis will work together very closely to create cutting-edge and secure computing systems.
