If we talk about computer science it is not that much comprehensive degree and is of 3 years but when it comes to Engineering it is of 4years with vast domains altogether for a professional career and has a good scope of job.

Computer Engineering is more focused on the hardware side of computers. It also involves creating and maintaining hardware and software interfaces to ensure smooth functioning if the hardware. CS is an amalgamation of every aspect of how a computer operates right down to the low level machine code through which computers operate. From learning algorithms coded into computers for the most basic of functions to understanding how computers perform complex operations effortlessly, CS is a study of the entire science behind computers.
