What Degree Could I Get...

Recommended Posts

if you want to use your hands follow ste advice but if you want to make 100k a year more use your brain. analysts see data companies get and find ways to make their companies make more money.in turn you get paid $$$$$ also they can plan infrastructure ie. what computers to get like say you are a bank of america analyst u find out what is best for your company so you recomend what to get. A lot of money is involved and since you seem smart and have a head start then i recomend this

Could you give me more info........and what degree would I most likely need...

 

And would jobs in graphics and software make decent salaries and are the degrees exrtremely hard to receive? :P

 

Edit: Computer Science Degree? I'm thinking this is what'll need....

psh. i majored in Applied Economics and Management....took just one intro-level CS course, and I'm a Network Administrator now :P. I'll eventually get some certs, but degrees don't just cater to a specific career. Find a subject you're interested in and take courses in it. If you major in anything computer-related, it won't be too difficult to test the waters in various fields. After taking some courses, you may discover your interest change to something you didn't expect you'd like.

if you like working LONG hours in front of the computer typing text, then computer programming is for you. Computer Engineering if for hardware

I majored in computer engineering and I liked it a lot because it's very diverse. I took a lot of CS courses (got a minor), so I can code pretty darn well in several languages. I took a few computer archetecture courses so I understand how the hardware works and how it all ties together. I also took a few operating system courses so I understand those too. Then I got a lot of electrical engineering classes so I understand circuit level design and advanced electrical theory. Then I did digital logic courses to understand binary and AND, OR, XOR, NAND, NOR gates etc. I also even got a course on transistor level logic design where I actually built a lame (but working) version of a cpu and actually layed it all out on the PCB. That was a great course!

 

Overall, I really liked computer engineering because it's a VERY diverse major and the fact that it's from the engineering college and not the general arts/sciences always looks a little impressive.

Last I knew, Computer Engineering was actually CS with an Electrical Engineering minor...so really that could take you basically anywhere.

I don't think it necessarily has to be laid out like that. I think it just refers to any combination of EE, CS and IS.

But what does a electrical engineer do? And is it the same as a computer engineer? I would need to get a degree in Computer Engineering?

 

I'm thinking about going here guys...

just from IT related stuff... mid 6 figures

 

EE and CE are NOT the same jobs. EE specializing in computers would be layout of circiut boards, things like that. CE would be more like planning out a network or roll out of a new computer system in an office... or even programming.
