I've been studying computer science and computer programming for years now in high school. I've been accepted to universities that offer two different kinds of degrees. One is Computer Science and one is Software Engineering. I could go either way for which degree I get, I was just wondering if someone could give me the big differences between the two and which, in their opinion, is better. This will help me decide which degree would better suit me. I heard that computer science involves more math while software engineering involves more business applications. Thanks!

I'm a new member. I earned a master's degree in math from the University of Kansas back in '89. I taught math for several years, as I transitioned into IT work. I've been full-time as a software developer in industry since late '93. For the past ten years, I've been working in .NET with equal exposure to VB.NET and C#, and a couple years writing little else but T-SQL. Before that, I worked in C language, C++, Java, and Visual Basic. I've got a lot of experience in develoment, enhancement, and support of enterprise-scale client-server workflow systems for call centers, …

Hi, we, the Software Engineering Group at Trier University (Germany), are currently conducting a survey on the use of sketches and diagrams in software development. We want to gain deeper insights into the work of software practitioners (developers, testers, architects, etc.) to call attention to their actual work practices, which we think is rarely done in academic research. It is difficult for us to reach software practitioners, therefore I post my call for participation here. Our short online survey (5-10 minutes) is available here: http://www.st.uni-trier.de/survey/ We can also discuss how and why you create and use sketches and diagrams when …

I won't be asking for a source code yet. What I need to figure out is the process of a certain Math problem with the equation that seemed to be impossible to be converted to source code. Here it goes: **A certain waveform is 0 volts for time less than 2 seconds and 3 volts for time equal to or greater than 2 seconds. (These waveforms are referred to as step functions.) *Prompt the user accepts time in the variable named time and displays the appropriate voltage, depending on the input value.*** So the problem is asking for a program …

Hello everyone! I'm doing a survey on the state of requirements engineering in the software development industry for my degree dissertation. My project is about developing a dedicated Requirements Management System. So, please drop by my questionnaire page (Google Forms) if you would like to participate. More information regarding my project can be found there. Your responses will help me develop a better and more relevant system, so I'm looking forward to them! [Questionnaire](http://bit.ly/drms-questionnaire) Thank you.

Hi there, I've always been wondering what's the best way to model a one-to-many relation between two Java classes and save them into a DB. For example, Imagine we have two classes Person and Address where a person might have more than one address, we know that the best way to model this in a relational DB, would be to have two tables [B][I]Person(personID,Name)[/I][/B] and [B][I]Address(addressID,personID,city,country, addrType)[/I][/B] So we save as many addresses as we want and associate them with the person ID. I want to implement this in objects, for example have a person1 as an instance of a …

Hello, I'm interested in becoming a computer software engineer when I get older. I'm currently a sophmore in highschool enrolled in an engineering program. I enjoy it a lot and plan to take the program throughout the rest of my highschool career. For one of our projects I need to interview an engineer from an engineering field that I'm interested in. I searched through google, yahoo answers, this website, and I even emailed a few engineers at colleges near my area but with no luck. I'm willing to show effort however you need me to. Anyway, here are the questions. …

There are many software engineering books in the market and programming instructions on the internet, but I don't see one for helping learners from scratch to be an expert. I figure it would be helpful to potential software engineers by putting my experience in series here on software engineering (web applications) and software design. Developing web applications is easy once you master the process; designing a software is a much harder job. So I think I can first work on the development part of the series. This could be a tentative catalog: 1. From UE to ER diagram and database …

Hello Everyone! My name is Steven. I am a Senior level Software Engineering major at Mississippi State. I've been fixing IT-ish problems since I was... 10, primarily in windows, so yeah! Needless to say, I'm decently knowledgeable when it comes to fixing computers, but every now and then, something I haven't encountered yet pops up, like my laptop freezing up [URL="http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/networking/threads/357320"]http://www.daniweb.com/hardware-and-software/networking/threads/357320[/URL], though in about an hour, I may find out if my problem is solved or not. Anyway, I'm here to help, as well as be helped, so together, let's learn something while helping as many people as we can!

Hi, I have just started my first semester in a Bachelor program 'Computer Engineering'. I have above basic knovledge in Java SE and currently am interested in Python. The problem is that I'm facing some difficulties in determing my purposes about my future career in IT field. I used to be recomended to pay a lot of attention to extracurricular activities and to get involved in a variety of projects as much as possible and form own portfolio. By now I haven't done anything important in Java or Python. But I've learned the syntax and some parts of the liblary …

Seems like a basic question for this forum but I wasn't certain if it had been asked. We all know how MySpace was and how Facebook improved on it. What would you build into the perfect next generation social media community if you knew you were the one chosen to do it?

When computer systems get "owned", you may think it takes a master-geek with an extensive amount of knowledge to hack into tightly-secured systems. After all, security bugs are quickly found out, and patches can be released within a few days. But when securing a computer system or network, especially the larger ones, many network administrators forget the most dangerous kind of hacking: social engineering. It may not sound like a threat, but it is. As [URL="http://www.darkreading.com/document.asp?doc_id=111503&WT.svl=column1_1"]Dark Reading[/URL] writes, a spy went into the bank to do some transactions, but while doing so, taking note of all the equipment in the …
