ee vs ece
what's the difference between the two? Is ece just ee with more computer science, cause if so, I'm taking that route!
Pretty much... But I'd advise you to read the programs' description since the programs vary from college to college.

ece is just ee with more c.
ECE, as I've seen it, is a concentration within EE that focuses more on computers than things like power lines. An ECE is a BSEE with a focus on computer engineering. You still get all the heavy EE courses but you get to take some operating system, compiler design, etc. courses, too.
Yes, I think ECE is less learning about radar, FM radio, and motors work, and more about CPU design and fabrication, data busses, and transistors.
When I got my ECE degree (1994), ECE had more computer architecture and real time operating systems; EE had more signal & systems and electromagnetics.

Those were my first semester courses senior year - transmission lines, radar, and motors. Just seemed funny to see them all lumped together all at once.
