What is the difference between CSE and CIS?
« on: July 11, 2018, 09:17:04 AM »
CIS is all about programming/interfacing and computer administration. CSE is more about problem solving and solution design.

In CIS, chances are the highest math would be 2nd semester calculus, though some programs require you to take elementary linear algebra (yes, that's higher than calculus). In CSE, chances are you would have to also take ordinary differential equations, and some programs require a third semester of calculus, and some require partial differential equations.

Conclusion: CIS means less math and more programming that you may never use, and CSE means more math that you may never use and less programming. Then again, the math you may use, depending on what exactly you do.
