Digital & Technology Solutions Degree Apprenticeship vs Computer Science Degree (uni)

Report Thread starter 11 months ago
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!
