    For a person who like to go forward in the Computer Field, what is the best to choose in higher education? Computer Science or Engineering(Software/Hardware/Network .etc)?

    {And also what are the differences regarding the economical benefits related to Computer Science and Computer Engineering?}

    You want computer science or software engineering. Computer engineering is half computer science and half electrical engineering.

    There are different courses aimed at different parts of the computer industry like Software Engineering, Hardware Engineering, Network Engineering and Cyber Engineering.
    So how does Computer Engineering differs from the above Engineering sectors?
