Introduction Of New 2021 Most Popular Technology Degrees
New 2021 Most Popular Technology Degrees. Technology degrees is there’s a lot of them and you know some of them are very similar to each other there’s like very subtle differences now I’m not going to have time to explain all those differences and I’m also not going to go too much into the numbers because I’ve made many videos in the past that dive into the numbers but overall technology degrees are very solid.
How much do you get paid job satisfaction
When it comes to the statistics like how much you get paid job satisfaction etc now, first of all, let’s get computer science out of the way that one is asked here next on the list is going to be information technology and I think everybody knows what like it guys are information technology people they help businesses with the technology side of things now overall when it comes to the numbers.
This one is pretty solid there are better ones on the list but I’m going to go ahead and put it into b tier next on the list is going to be information technology management so this one is very similar to information technology but it also adds in the leadership and management side of things now talked about this many times on the channel but if you go into management level positions you tend to make way more money so if you’re able to combine your information technology skills with some business and management skills companies are going to love you.
So this one is going to go into a tier next one on the list is going to be cyber security now this is one wherein my opinion I could see it exploding and becoming even better in the next five years it’s still pretty good right now last year I think I ranked it a tier I could see this one going into s tier you know you see all these scandals where people’s information gets leaked from you know Equifax or target and this ends up costing companies millions of dollars directly and also indirectly because their brand takes a hit so I could see this one beings tier soon but right now.
This is a rare degree not many universities
I’m gonna go ahead and put it into a tier very similar to cyber security as information security and assurance this is a rare degree not many universities have it but the statistics on this one are slightly better than even cyber security so for that reason, I’m going to go ahead and put it into a tier next on the list is going to be information science now this is a really interesting one because.
It’s taking something that is booming right now which is you know information science data science and you’re combining that technical aspect of things with a social science side of things as well so this studies how people and societies interact with information and technology so it’s studying how humans interact with the digital world so you can see why this one would be extremely useful in the modern world and uh for that reason I am gonna go ahead and put this one into b tier you know.

What I think I put it b tier last year I’m gonna put a tier this year all right so next on the list is going to be computer graphics technology now this one kind of combines your technical skills with a few creative skills as well and, it’s all about analyzing and communicating ideas visually so, for instance, you might get this degree and then go into video game creation so can be a decent one but compared to the other uh technology-related degrees the statistics aren’t as good.
A combination of a communications degree
I have to be honest with you could be right for you know a certain person a certain type of person but this one is going to go into deter next one is going to be telecommunications and this is a combination of a communications degree with an i.t degree a technology degree so it’s going to be all about communicating using technology so, for instance, communicating over the phone communicating via video, uh sometimes it’s like a live stream sometimes it’s like youtube where it’s one-way communication.
So overall when it comes to the statistics this one is it’s kind of middle of the pack it’s not as bad as some of the other ones but it’s also not on you know b or a tier level I’m going to go ahead and put this one into c tier next one on the list is going to be network administration and this is going to be very similar to an information technology degree now a lot of the time if you get a network administration degree you’re going to be competing for the same jobs as people who get an I t degree except.
The problem is network administration is more limited than information technology so it’s that old problem I’ve talked about many times on this channel where certain degrees kind of pigeonhole you into careers whereas other degrees are much more flexible and that’s probably why the statistics on this one aren’t as good as information technology so for that reason I’m going to go ahead and put this one into d tier next on the list is going to be computer information systems now this one is very similar to management information systems.
Super random technology degrees
This is a really good business related degree that’s kind of combined with technology but it has a little bit more of an emphasis on the technology and the information side of things but overall the statistics are very good uh with this one I’m going to go ahead and put it into a tier now I didn’t put anything into f-tier this year but i will say.
There are a lot of super random technology degrees out there right and they have the word technology in them that doesn’t necessarily mean that they’re a legit tech degree right so there’s one i saw i used this as an example in the you know top five worst technology degrees it was like printing technology that is way too specific so one thing you want to look out for if you are looking to get into technology is degrees.
