I'm considering doing a computer science degree (in the UK) but recently I've been put off from reading what other people have to say about it. It seems most people think a degree in maths, physics or engineering is much better because with those degrees you can do everything you could do with a computer science degree and more. For example it would seem to be fairly easy for someone with a physics or engineering degree to be able to go into computer science research, or get a job as a software engineer, but it would be very difficult for someone with a computer science degree, to go into physics/engineering research or get a job as an engineer (other than a software engineer). Also I've read that computer science is considered a fairy easy degree when compared to degrees like physics, maths or engineering, and therefore doesn't get the same respect. I'm posting on this forum as there seems to be some very knowledgeable people about science and engineering. So basically how true are the above points and therefore how good would you say a computer science degree is in comparison to a maths, physics or engineering degree?
