    I have a nephew who will be entering college soon and he is still in between for these two courses: Computer Science and Computer Engineering. I'm not equipped with knowledge about those two. Actually, I will help him with is tuition that's why I'm asking. Which has better opportunities after college?

    "Computer engineering is a discipline that integrates several fields of computer science and electronics engineering required to develop computer hardware and software.[1] Computer engineers usually have training in electronic engineering (or electrical engineering), software design, and hardware–software integration instead of only software engineering or electronic engineering. Computer engineers are involved in many hardware and software aspects of computing, from the design of individual microcontrollers, microprocessors, personal computers, and supercomputers, to circuit design. This field of engineering not only focuses on how computer systems themselves work, but also how they integrate into the larger picture.[2]"

    Is that what you mean by Computer Engineering?

    I guess, I already understand the differences. Thanks for taking time to research for these two.
