Computer Major tips

I can't decide between Computer Engineering or Computer Science. I am a decent programmer, and I'm fascinated with hardware. I will be going to Arkansas which has a somewhat strong engineering program. Any current Computer whatever majors that can give me a tip or two? Thanks

I don't know about Arkansas, but up here, we also have IST (information science) which deals with more of the application of technology, and SRA (Security and risk analysis) which is a cyber security and counter terrorism based major.

Just a few other options if they are available.

This should mean engineering unless the CS department has significantly better job placement. The only downside is that you may have to take some of the uglier physics classes as an engineer.

No worries about Physics, or Calc. I have two semesters of those taken care of through AP classes, and I am pretty good at it. It isn't fun, but I will knock it out in time.
