Anon, why did you do CS instead of EE?

Anon, why did you do CS instead of EE?

You are struggling to find work when you could have just gotten an EE degree instead and never spent more than a month looking for a job. You could get an accredited degree from the shittiest school for in-state tuition or gone into computer engineering instead and could still have unlimited well-paying jobs and more of a programming angle to your work, but you didn't. Massive L as they say, but you wanted to not give a frick about math and do menial coding all day.

    EE is a stupid major, you might as well just go Physics at that point. But seeing EE, Physics, Math majors pass programming interviews at higher rates than CS majors is very very funny tbdesu.

      Physics and math BS by themselves do not get jobs like EE does. You literally cannot be underemployed with an accredited EE bachelors, let alone a masters degree or higher.

        Underemployment isn't a real thing, all that matters is salary, but that's irrelevant, you're still wrong. Physics has the widest employability in the US of any major.

          Where did you hear that from? Here is a source for EE an CE being a lot better than physics. My anecdotal experience is that 100% of the EE grads I know are employed full-time right now vs. 0% of physics grads. These all being from a highly-respect university in the US and none went for a masters. To do pure physics professionally, you need an advanced degree.

            I am not paying $200 to access data the DOL gives out for free. Also unemployment is not the compliment of employability. Nurses for example have fairly low employability but zero unemployment. It's a measure of breadth, not volume.

            Then post it if you are getting it from the DoL.

            This has EEs at 106,950 with just a bachelors. Meanwhile physicists are in the doctoral or professional camp.

            You're moronic, that's not what that table says at all. That's about job titles, not majors.

      What does your resume look like. I work with a lot of CEs doing EE work.

    I did CS because the university I could afford didn't have EE. Got a job in defense immediately out of college during covid and now they're paying for my masters in EE.

    I got an EE degree back in 2016. I have no regrets. I'm making 98k a year and don't have to sit at a computer all day, only half of the day.

      I have tons of respect for MEs, but they don't tend to be compensated the same as EEs. I know all of one person with the degree and his outcome was like 99th percentile for the tier of school he went to.

      Basically did the same thing with a pure EE bachelors.

      I could have gone either way, but EE salaries were depressing to look at.

      And in my spare time, I still get to tinker with discrete electronics to my heart's content.

      Obviously it worked out for you, but the average CS grad isn't making anything like 200k base.

      UMich is decent enough to get into FAANG with just a bachelors. There was also a panic like 20 years ago about physical engineering degrees that has since gone away but for someone older, he probably matriculated in the shadow of that.

    I don't believe these people who flex 6 figures at 21 or say 200K is not enough.
    You need 15-20 years to maybe reach 100K. Salary discussions on IQfy are all fake.

      This. Unlikely for so many people making the upper 10th percentile of tech salaries to hang out in IQfy when IQfy itself isn't a popular website.

    Honestly, here in France, they are both dead end degrees. People with a CS degree get treated like morons by real engineer and get paid in consequence, and many EEs can't ind a job so they end up being Javashitters for a boomer SS2I/ESN.
