    Well tomorrow i'm going to register on college, and i was wondering which one is the best. Please vote on the poll above and also post your reasons below, i'd really appreciate it since this is a really important choice. I know computer engineering is the best but i heard it is extremely hard because of the mathematics.

    Thank you!

    IT - sounds too broad and simple
    Computer Science - sounds boring
    Computer Engineering <- this

    How did you do at math in high school?

    For my little brother I'm considering something like BSc in Computer Science and MSc./MEng. in Software Engineering.

    Well i am not really good at math, it's something that can be taught but i don't think i can do a lot, that's why i was considering Computer Science.

    I would say Computer Science. Slightly harder, but a bit broader, allowing you to do a range of jobs/courses on completion. I did a similar course, loved it.

    I would suggest Computer Engineering, even if you are not good at math, you can still learn them (I was not good at math when I joined Computer Engineering, but here I am now with a degree). I am suggesting Computer Engineering because it offers many job opportunities (personal experience).

    Go for IT. You will learn basics of most of the programming languages + web design + lot more.

    The fact that i needed to get a "90%" in maths made me not go into IT as much as i love computers and whole networking part, now i'm studying towards an LLB Law degree, but do with what you feel you can cope with OP :) either way just work hard :D

    I went to IT college here in Bosnia.

    After one year I caught myself in one thing, I did not learned nothing new there, everything I knew I still know.

    I just got stressed, there is no places to work in Bosnia, and I will try to not work for someones else dream, but for mine dream.

    I wish you a good luck.

    Yes, the thing is that IT can be simple and not really the best choice but I prefer this and it's a good opportunity in this times.
