Computer Science Degrees Are Becoming Obsolete For Software Engineers


In this web development podcast episode, I made the statement that within 5 years, under 50% of junior software engineers will have a Computer Science degree. Software engineering is a field that updates too quickly for college curriculums to keep up with at a fast pace, which is often why they're outdated. They put students in a massive amount of debt without any guarantee of a job. Alternative paths such as coding bootcamps and self-paced online programs are on the rise, and rightfully so. With the abundant access of education on the internet, it's no longer worth the return on your investment to invest in a bloated degree. Do you agree?
