Hi all, I would really appreciate someone taking a guess what this program equates to in English (whether it is Computer Science, Computer Engineering, IT or something else).

I'm currently living in a non-English speaking country but will possibly be moving to Europe after graduating (my mom is European) so I'm trying to figure out what this degree would translate to in a Western country.

I've translated the curriculum to English as best I could (there may be mistakes because I'm not familiar with technical language). I just want to know what this program resembles in your opinion. Is it "computer science" or something else?

Thank you in advance!


The program's name is basically "Engineer in Informatics" (which I know doesn't exist as a degree or job title in English)

Looks like a combination of both Computer Science and Computer Engineering.

Traditionally Computer Science is software oriented. Apart from introductory logic, number bases, circuits & gates, it mainly deals with algorithms, data structures, language (low level, high level), compiler design, simulations, game theory, etc.

Computer Engineering is hardware oriented. Design, layout, topology, thermal considerations, power management, chip design.

Your course outline covers all the above and more.

Thanks so much! That's very good news. So this would be like having a double major? I was afraid this might be a fluffy program or something that was more geared toward going into business (I would rather be a scientist or engineer than do that). I'm not very tech savvy at the moment but hopefully will be able to keep up with this program as universities where I am are few and far between and this seems like one of my best options.
