Ohh, and as far as what the difference between the two an excerpt from Wikipedia (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Computer_science) explains: "David Parnas, taking a cue from the relationship between other engineering and science disciplines, has claimed that the principal focus of computer science is studying the properties of computation in general, while the principal focus of software engineering is the design of specific computations to achieve practical goals, making the two separate but complementary disciplines."
