So I'm about to go uni on the 24th in NTU to study computing, but I like my hardware a lot and I was told that Computer Systems Engineering that they do offers a good balance between hardware or software. My first thought was an IT technician but who are those guys? are they like for example people from sky who they send over to your house if your router is having problems or do they work for companies to set up systems? I never really understood main roles of an IT technician. Is there anything I should specifically research regarding them? secondly any other jobs you guys would recommend to look into regarding those courses? Ans thirdly do unis have like careers advisers you can help us go on the right direction to find a job that matches what we study?

It's probably not a smart move to be aiming for an IT Technician job following graduating, you could do this without going to university and typically an apprenticeship without any post-GCSE qualifications would be more appropriate.

Example jobs following a Computing related degree could include: Software Engineer/Developer, IT Consultant, Cyber Security Engineer/Analyst, Infrastructure/Network Engineer (might be better for what you want than an IT Technician), Data Scientist, Machine Learning Engineer, UX Designer/Developer etc.

But doing Computer Systems Engineering, you might find yourself more equipped to be a Software Engineer working on Embedded systems or maybe a Hardware or Electronics Engineer or Designer.

Hope this helps

I think you shouldn't worry too much at this moment as you are only just entering uni. But, having those questions in your mind is good as it means you are going to be on the lookout for what is available and what makes you tick. Usually, 1st year allows many to get a better hang of things. Keep an open mind. Don't limit yourself based on what you have experienced up till now. You may be pleasantly surprised at what may prick your interest. That's what university is about. There's lots much more out there in computers and computing. Enjoy.
