A new study suggests that only about a third of college students need a bachelor’s degree in computer science to graduate.
That means only 1.4% of graduates with bachelor’s degrees in computer sciences will get jobs in the IT sector and only 1% will get a computer science job.
The study, published in the American Association for the Advancement of Science, found that about 25% of computer science graduates would get jobs with large tech companies and a little over 10% would get a job with a non-tech company.
The results are based on a survey of more than 2,000 students who completed a computer education program in 2014.
