Should I do a ICT degree or a degree in CS?

The reason is ask is 2 point I have heard that KS3 are dumping ICT so will ICT be around in 5 years?

Also I have worked in IT for 14 years for civilian and military environments and need to get a qualification to match my experience.

I'd say CS and here's why... CS grads can do ICT roles, but ICT grads can't always do CS roles. That might sound harsh, but that's from 9 years of mentoring CS/ICT students.

That said, if you're studying part time or only doing it to tick a box, ICT will probably be more straight forward as generally ICT has less techie modules.

What uni's are you looking at?

Well I'm loving teaching IT at the moment from anything CISCO, WIN SVR 2008/EXSI, Ubuntu. So doing the ICT would be a tick in the box and CS would certainly be more challenging. I am currently looking at Stafford ICT as they write off 90 points which is accredited but it's ICT.

What do you recon?

As a mature student who's working, make it easy on yourself and do ICT. You know yourself your experience is what will matter more for any future jobs.
