Computer Science vs RoboticsWatch
I'm looking for some advice on what course would be more suitable for me to study. After university, key points would be:
- Starting salary and growth of salary
- Development of future technologies
- Business opportunities
I've learned various programming languages since being out of school (I'm 21). My other strongest subjects are naturally physics and mathematics. I feel like after so many years in the field, I would likely take a high managerial role or start my own business. Would one choice be better than the other for this?
I know very little about robotics and I am worried that it lacks the prestige a computer science degree has, due to it being a fairly new field. Would employers prefer a CS degree? Would Robotics offer a narrow range of job opportunities compared to CS?
I'm sure there's other questions but this will do for now. Thanks for your help.
If I was you though, also consider Engineering courses if your strong subjects are Programming (Computing), Physics and Maths. They all go hand in hand for quite a few Engineering degrees so just look around. Those are good subjects and assuming you have sufficient qualifications (i.e. GCE) in them, they can take you far.
