    I there, I am trying to look for a degree/career that would allow me to build computers, fix them or program them. Any ideas?
    Any input is welcome!
    Thanks in advance!

    By build and fix do you mean more like a technician and assembling desktops or more like designing chips, niolding really large networks?

    There are rather a lot of computer courses.

    You will just have to hav a scan through thse computer engineering courses

    Building and repairing computers physically is quite a basic skill that can be picked up as a vocational course at colleges. If you want to earn more money, then perhaps look into becoming a systems or network administrator, networking specialist, etc by studying hardware based courses such as computing or comp sci (usually you need to supplement the degree with certifications as well, such as database specialism, cisco products, etc). if you want to program, then look at comp sci, data science, etc.
