Is Computer Science or Computer Engineering right for me?

I'm currently in the process of transferring to a 4-year university from a community college, and I haven't quite made up my mind on what to major in. My initial thought was to go for Mechanical Engineering, but I've been bouncing around the idea of Computer Engineering or Computer Science lately. I have experience in the manufacturing field, I have done work in computer repair, and I am a certified CNC programmer (used for machinery). I feel like these skills would come in handy for this particular field. I enjoy working with my hands, and I'm told by a friend of mine that Computer Science or Engineering could be a perfect fit in that aspect. I'm decent at math, but I am not what you would call a huge fan. I just don't enjoy solving long and complicated problems. Does Computer Science or Engineering sound like a good fit for me? Should I stay with Mechanical Engineering? Or is there something else that I may be a good fit for? If you know anything about this subject, I really would appreciate the help. I can provide more info upon request.

See if you can get to an exposition about these job fields. You will meet many people with similar backgrounds to yours, and can talk freely with them. Why not talk to some of the professors who teach these subjects. I can imagine it would be a welcome change for them to discuss this with you.
