in blog •  last year

There’s no doubt in your mind—you want to work in the exciting world of technology! And with the promising job growth and exciting earning potential, who could blame you?
The average median salary for professionals in this industry is upwards of $75,000 annually, according to theU.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS).* These positions are also projected to grow by an average of nearly 19 percent through 2022, which is almost double the average growth rate of all occupations (11 percent). Considering all these factors, it’s easy to see why you’re interested in pursuing a degree in technology.
The hard part is deciding which degree is right for you and your career aspirations. If you’re looking for a program that will prime you for success in a variety of technology careers, you’re probably considering IT versus computer science.
The two may seem similar on the surface, but there are different skills and career opportunities associated with each. We created this infographic to provide you with a side-by-side comparison of these fields of study so you can decide which suits you best.
