I'm going to start studying at UF this summer, and I wanted to ask about something. I already decided that I am majoring in mathematics (CLAS degree, I assume); however, I want to get a second degree in an engineering course as well. I was considering something dealing with electrical and computer engineering. Unfortunately, I have become confused as how the various majors of the department of electrical and computer engineering and the department of computer and information science and engineering relate to each other. So far, I've seen the following offered.
Department Of Electrical And Computer Engineering:
Bachelor Of Science In Electrical Engineering
Bachelor Of Science In Computer Engineering (Hardware Emphasis)
Department Of Computer And Information Science And Engineering:
Computer Engineering - Software Emphasis (CEN)
Digital Arts And Sciences (DAS)
Computer Science (CSE)
Computer Science (CSC)
Computer Information Science (CIS)
After reading about the majors, I have so far seen that Digital Arts And Sciences (DAS) is designed to allow a combined study with related arts, and it seems Computer Information Science (CIS) is geared towards people in management positions. Computer Science (CSC) is kind of like Digital Arts And Sciences (DAS) in that it allows people another emphasis but that emphasis is meant to be in the liberal arts and sciences.
However, I am unsure about the rest. I think it says says Compuer Science (CSE) is comparable to Bachelor Of Science In Computer Engineering (Hardware Emphasis) from the Department Of Electrical And Computer Engineering, so what's the difference? And where does that leave Computer Engineering - Software Emphasis (CEN)? And how do both degrees from the Department Of Electrical And Computer Engineering relate to each other? Can someone please explain this better? Thank you!
