    Hi guys.

    was just admitted to 2 faculties in McGill university, Montreal.
    I'm alittle confused as for which one to choose though. the B.Sc (offered by the school of computer science) seemes to be more practical and more "hands on" programming.
    the one offered by the Engineering faculty though is a "proffesional engineer" degree, but seems to have all of these engineering courses... it's less of software, alittle bit of everything...

    i'm just confused for what to choose.
    will this really make a difference out in the job market (in Software development field)?

    Thanks ahead guys

    If you want to be a software developer, take courses in software development. If you want to be a compiler developer or other high level computer engineer, take that course load.

    You are welcome. Based on your layout of the question, I think that you already knew the answer.

    not really
    it seems like here in Montreal, or in the province of quebec being an engineer really is a plus. personally don't mind the title, but not sure whether a science degree would mean i won't be able to do the same job a software engineer does ? outside of quebec - it's disputable...

    ohh well.. guess i'll have to wait and see.
    went for science for now. but will leave it open to change faculty if i feel like it after 1st year.
