Computer engineers design computers and the basic software that runs them, including both personal computers and the "embedded" computer systems that run cars, aircraft, videogames, etc. They deal with more hardware. Software engineering deals with building and maintaining software systems. Depends on your interests. I'd personally prefer building computers rather than working on software systems.

it's true that computer engineering is more related to hardware than software engineering.
but we can not say that software engineering is more related to software than hardware engineering.

reading both websites of UT/UW:
you could find that computer engineering students have lots of software jobs in co-op;
some of them enter giant software companies like microsoft,google...
computer engineering students have lots of software jobs after graduation: such as games,software developper...
embedded technology need lots of software too.

I think computer engineering has more scopes as compared to software engineering today. Computer engineering comprises the training of both software and hardware components. Thereby increasing the range of caliber of the students when it comes to job opportunities or work areas. Whereas software engineers get detailed training in software components only. They don't study hardware components in detail.
