So I'm going into U-Mich this year into their LSA school (main school sorta) for Computer Science. I've been contemplating on whether or not I should try to get into the College of Engineering for Computer Sciences... Differences would be that in LSA I would get a BS while in CoE I would get a BSEng. I would still get the same career resources that CoE students get but I was wondering if just getting a BS will prevent me (as opposed to somebody with a BSEng.) from getting jobs/grad school acceptances. I've tried asking this at other forums, this place wasn't my first choice, but I figured somebody here may have something intelligent to say about it.
I'm mostly interested inif that matters.
I guess it's supposed to be easier to double major in stuff depending on the school you're in (another Engineering major in CoE, a liberal arts major in LSA)... but I don't really understand how that works, seems stupid. I've been thinking about either double majoring in econ or at least minoring in it (A Masters in Econ is something that I may like to get some day)... not sure if I want to go for Electrical Engineering with it also... doesn't seem like something I would be very interested in and I was hoping, if I do decide to learn EE, that I could go for a masters in it w/ CS (though I'm not sure how possible that is???).
Basically, does a degree from the CoE in CS carry more weight than a degree from LSA in CS? My instincts tell me yes, but some peoples' opinions tell me no. hmmmmm
