5/1     What's the difference between CS and Computer Engineering?
        http://holykaw.alltop.com/top-ten-paying-degrees-for-college-graduates
        \_ One is science and the other is engineering.
        \_ From http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Computer_science
           'A folkloric quotation ... states that "computer science is no more
           about computers than astronomy is about telescopes."  The design
           and deployment of computers and computer systems is generally
           considered the province of disciplines other than computer science.
           For example, the study of computer hardware is usually considered
           part of computer engineering'
           Here in Cal, though, I think an EECS major is free to take a whole
           bunch of CS16x and even CS17x theory courses (maybe that's why it's
           called EECS rather than CE) while a CS major can take EE courses.
           As if it's not confusing enough already, check this out:

           BTW, another set of seeming confusing majors in Cal:
           BA Chemistry, BS Chemistry, BS Chemical Engineering.
