I stumbled across (read: it was on digg) an interesting blog/article about Computer Science, Computer Engineering, Software Engineering, Electrical Engineering and Mechatronics Engineering and how they are related as well as different. It is a pretty good account of how these very similar programs are different and how they are the same, although it is a little Comp Sci centered, as evident by the graphic in which Computer Science is glowing green, and everything else seems to connect to it (not to mention that it comes from compsci.ca!). At any rate I think it is fairly accurate, as far as my experience tells me, and relevant considering I just accepted a job in the Mechatronics/Electrical/Computer Engineering area. I wish I could have pointed some people to this website to explain the differences in the programs, or perhaps more importantly, how closely they are related.
