Top 4 Degrees for a Career on the Cutting Edge of Tech

Top 4 Degrees for a Career on the Cutting Edge of Tech
  • Opening Intro -

    The field of technology is one of the fastest growing areas right now, so recent graduates with degrees in the right fields can easily get a great job.

-------------------------------------

If you are interested in a career in a technological industry, consider getting one of these four degrees. In addition to the obviously helpful degrees, a few of the items on this list might surprise you.

Computer Science

This is one of the classically desirable technology degrees for a reason. People who graduate from a reputable college with a computer science degree typically end up fielding calls from various interested recruiters. Though even a basic computer science degree will make you a very hirable prospect in the tech field, consider a minor in mathematics or information science to stand out from everyone else.

With a computer science degree, you can have a great shot for a career as a software applications developer, computer systems analyst, computer systems engineer, network systems administrator, database administrator, and more. In all of those positions, the average salary is $75,000 or higher, and experienced workers can expect to earn even more. The combination of high average salary and high demand makes the computer science field lucrative and safe.

Information Security

This degree typically requires an in-person or online master’s in information assurance degree, but it is definitely worth it. As more and more companies store customer data electronically instead of in paper files, security is becoming absolutely essential. Being able to predict and deter cyberattacks before data breaches happen can be an invaluable asset to any company.

Computer Animation

This degree is ideal for a creative person who still wants to take advantage of the growth in the technological industry. Modern advertising trends often use cutting edge animation instead of simple photographs or videos. Computer animation is not just used for Disney movies any more, and it actually has many applications, especially among tech companies that want to create infomercials or advertising videos with animation.

Business Administration

You do not need to be brilliant at math or computers in order to be a valuable addition to a tech company. Countless tech startups are created by scientifically brilliant people who have no clue how to run a business in the real world. People with a business degree are needed to help in the day-to-day running of every tech company, and you can specialize in classes that specifically focus on the needs of the tech industry.

If you want to work in the tech industry, do not forget your own individual strengths and interests. Like any other field of business, people who have expertise in all areas are needed to boost the industry. Whether you love creating computer programs or drawing fun cartoons, it is possible to find a degree that can be valuable to any hiring tech company.
