What about further education?
Pursuing higher education after completing your degree might not at first seem that appealing. You’ve worked for four solid years on Computer Science or a degree in Computer Engineering programs after all. But by choosing to take on a master’s degree in the field, you have a higher chance of advancing in your career (and therefore your potential salary) in the long term.
No matter which bachelor’s degree you choose, you can alternatively take on a master’s in business administration, with the core focus being on technology. This has the benefit of opening up many doors to more senior roles, such as a Chief Technology Officer – which will not only pay a higher salary but also allow you to develop further within your chosen career.
So what job opportunities can Computer Science and Computer Engineering lead to?
Graduating with a Computer Science major or a Computer Engineering major can lead to a plethora of career paths. Opening the doors to automation, telecommunication, and other roles, there are no limits of what you can do with your degree.
When comparing the two, however, Computer Science’s most popular job opportunities are Website Designer or developer, Systems Analyst, Computer Programmer/App Programmer, Data Scientist and UX/UI Designer.
A lot of industries require the skills that come with completing a Computer Science degree. With the development of technologies, there are is an abundance of roles opening for app and website developers, software development and more.
For Computer Engineering, the most popular career paths are QC (Quality Control) Engineer, Mechanical Engineer, Electrical Engineer, Computer Architecture Developer, Mobile Device Engineer and Computer Hardware Engineer. Computer Engineering graduates, similarly to Computer Science graduates will have the training to work within software development if they want to.
