Well, if you want my opinion I would go with the Computer Engineering Technology for a couple of reasons. Depending on the depth of the course it will position you for a network admin or sys admin position down the road. With the programming you could find yourself locked in to being a programmer and unless you think that coding all day is fun you may want to leave yourself some options.Stratocaster said:I have to decide which program in college to take by Sunday. I want to know which job has more oppertunities and which job has more pay?
-Computer Programming technology
-Computer Engineering Technology
thanks! (BTW this is community college at humber)
I was seriously thinking of going into trades...But my parents said GO TO COLLEGE. Thats how parents are (who came from another country). They don't understand that I have other choices...so I'm going to college....PaulS said:It's getting harder and somewhat more demanding. I have worked in Industry for the last 25 years and i see the field filling up. If you want to get a guaranteed job look at the trades and i don't mean engineering. I work as a Industrial electrician, basically troubleshooting automated equipment and the wages can reach or exceed six figures. Something to think about. :food-smiley-004:
I can pretty much assure you that it will not be easy to find a job unless you have connections. You also have to understand that when you graduate you will really know nothing. That will come with experience in the field.Stratocaster said:Do you mean its going to be hard to find a job?
Go to college, or the big U. Whenever I see a resume without it, it goes straight to file 13.............Stratocaster said:I was seriously thinking of going into trades...But my parents said GO TO COLLEGE.

You'll make more money starting out in development. If you are good you'll have job security quickly and your salary will go up fast because of it.Stratocaster said:Well lets talk about salary now...
Am I going to be getting something decent with a computer engineering technology diploma?
Sorry bout all the questions, but I'm really desperate right now!
