The degree isn't what gets you a job OP it's what you learn. If you fully utilize your universities resources and become a decent programmer, you'll get a job. If you just coast through your coursework, you'll probably have a hard time.
Unless you actually take the time to study and learn programming:
A quick Google search will bring you dozens of articles, blog posts, white papers, etc about how employers interview recent CS grads that can't do things like Fizz Buzz, or who can't whiteboard even basic programming concepts.
CS is not a programming degree. It is not a software engineering or software development degree.
It is a degree in the mathematics of computation.
This trend of workplace unprepared CS grads has led to the rise of more programming oriented degree programs like Software Engineering (SE) or Computing and Information Systems (CIS).
You'll do fine in the workplace with a CS degree if you take the time to apply what you've learned to programming; but you need to consider that you sacrifice more practical course material in order to take some of the more advanced mathematics courses in a CS degree.
>>52241895 well, if you understand the stuff, and start seeing the world from that perspective it tells you why most code is utter shit.
it also tells you how to create code that is not shit.
if you want to be one who doesn't think, and just puts together code, then goes home and feels good about himself (dat dere blissful ignorance) then you need to go to a trade school to learn how to program.
if you want to be above programmers, and actually contribute to the advancement of computational science, then join us in academia but be forewarned: it is extremely difficult to tell programmers (aka normies) how incorrect their thinking is and that they could do better if they just do a few simple things before writing code.
