Students are more likely to earn a bachelor’s degree in computer information technology (CIT) than they are in the field of computer science.
That’s the finding of a recent study by the University at Buffalo, and it’s not surprising: IT workers are less educated than other occupations in the US.
The findings also have implications for the country as a whole.
If you’re a software engineer in Chicago, for example, you’re probably not going to be a doctor in the foreseeable future.
As the number of IT workers rises and computer skills fall, it’s likely that the number who master the skills will decrease as well.
That means you could be the next tech executive in your community.
The University at Bills report found that IT workers were less likely than other workers in their field to have bachelor’s degrees and had the lowest level of computer literacy.
What makes a good computer science education?
The report looked at five years of data on the educational attainment of more than 2,000 IT workers.
IT workers in the study had a median score of 73 on a scale of 1 to 10.
IT professionals who took the SAT in the last four years were less educated.
The report also found that the students who attended computer science colleges had higher levels of knowledge in a range of topics.
They were more likely than students in other professions to know how to use tools like spreadsheet software.
They had a higher number of computer engineering majors than the other majors.
But those who attended a computer-science college had the highest scores in each of those subjects.
The study is limited by the fact that the survey asked the students what subjects they chose to study, not how they got into the college.
Still, the report’s authors say the data indicates that computer science has a strong academic reputation.
That may explain why IT workers who got their IT degrees from the university were more apt to have mastered the skills.
And, the authors point out, IT workers from other professions may have had higher standards for their IT education.
Computer science graduates are more apt than non-engineering graduates to work in technology-related positions.
The IT workers with the highest SAT scores were also the most likely to work for technology companies, and those with the lowest SAT scores tended to work as contractors or consultants.
But IT workers also have higher degrees of aptitude in the areas of social science, humanities, and social sciences.
Computer scientists and engineering professionals were also more likely and likely to have high SAT scores in social sciences than those who majored in science.
The researchers point out that the average SAT score for IT workers is around 2,400.
For those with engineering degrees, the average is about 2,900.
So the IT workers at the bottom of the spectrum were less apt than the IT engineers at the top of the chart.
The survey of about 1,000 students in the United States, which took place between 2008 and 2014, also found a higher percentage of IT professionals were women.
They also tended to be younger.
The sample included students who had completed high school, who had at least one year of college, and who were enrolled full time.
The authors of the study also looked at what other factors might influence the students’ academic achievement.
For example, those who had attended college and had at most a bachelor degree were more than twice as likely as those who didn’t to be in the top 5% of students in math and science.
But, the study found that students who did have a bachelor was not necessarily the best predictor of their performance in the SAT.
Students who had high school diplomas were more closely linked to their scores than those without.
Students with college degrees were also likely to score higher than those with less education.
And those with more education were more similar to students with less.
These data suggest that the education of IT employees is strongly tied to their education.
What are the consequences of low education for employers?
IT workers aren’t just students.
They’re also people in general, says Mary Elizabeth Hall, associate director of IT for the Association of American Colleges and Universities.
“They’re people who are trying to manage the organization, the quality of the work they do, and they’re also in the workforce,” Hall says.
“There are some who are doing that by choice, and others who are choosing to work less hours.”
That means those who are working more hours are likely to be more likely not to have the skills they need to stay in the job market, Hall adds.
If the trends continue, the IT workforce will be an increasingly diverse group of people.
In the long run, that could have a significant impact on how the workforce evolves, Hall says, adding that IT is not the only field that is growing.
She also points out that IT will need to adjust to changing requirements.
For instance, she says, a number of businesses are looking for new ways to deliver value to their customers, and IT is no exception.
