Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship vs Computer Science Degree (uni)Watch
I'm in my first year of college studying computer science, maths and geography and plan to have a career as a software engineer in the future. I've been debating whether I should go to uni or get a degree apprenticeship and think the latter is the best option. However when I've been researching software engineering degree apprenticeships, the degree you get at the end always seems to be a digital and technology solutions one. What kind of jobs can I expect to land myself in the future if I chose the D&T solutions route? Is it similar to a computer science degree?
Although I'm considering a career in software engineering, I'm not completely set on that. A computer science degree is pretty general and can be applied to many things, which is what drew me to it. Is this the same for a D&T solutions degree or is that more specific for a certain job/specialised field?
I'm hoping someone will be able to shed some light onto this for me and explain what exactly a D&T solutions degree entails, what jobs you can get with it and whether its a well respected degree in the field (software engineering in particular).
Thanks in advance and I look forward to replies!
