maybe, but im not one who typically comes up with multi-billion dollar ideas. lol

computer science is computer engineering without having to know electrical engineering and is way less math intense. Computer scientists focus more on application design and construction of computers at the programming level. The engineers are building the physical hardware and we're building the virtual software. Hopefully that gives you an idea but thats the best way i can put it.

when I was younger I always wanted to be a musician.
then I got interested in electronic music and took a degree in electronic engineering and wanted to build effects box and amplifiers for musical instruments, (which I now just do as a hobby).

my career is in IT, a job I kind of fell into.

well i am interested in going into law cant yet decide if imma be a barrister or a solicitor although that decision is a long way off yet 4 years at least
i favour barrister as they tend to specialise and there is more chance of being promoted to the judiciary

whihc seems like a real cool job to me

I'm hoping to go into electrical engineering or something like that. Possibly Mechanical engineering.
