Well, yes. You don't really need a compsci degree if all you're gonna do is mundane IT support work. On the other hand, if you are going to be doing more demanding work which involves lengthy troubleshooting, it can be greatly beneficial to have a scientific background from a hard science like maths, physics, chemistry, engineering etc. You don't get this from other degrees. My boss only employs people with hard science degrees (exceptions would only be if you have real work experience from security agencies etc). Most of my colleagues have MSc/MEng or Phd.
