para guluhin lalo ang isip mo.. heto... I took BS. Computer Science, there are a couple of hardware/software/business side subjects. The bad part, about 90% of what I studied in college is obsolete. Every new skill I need to learn by myself. Panibagong study uli as the technology changes. The good part, the fundamentals of IT, programming, system analysis makes it easier for me to learn new stuff.
In terms of work, eto ang masasabi ko, all things that a typical ECE or IT person does, in most cases (not all ha) are supporting functions of the main business. For example, the booming call center industry. The core business is outsourcing services but the infrastructure that supports it are based on technologies like VOIP, networks, where ECE or IT people handle.
The good thing about IT is maraming pwedeng pasukan na industries. Actually any industry, any mid sized company, may IT department. And since namention mo na IT ang hilig, eh di yun na. Ang importante lang is maging hands on sya sa lahat ng projects, wag yung parang mga nakikita natin sa forum na "patulong may assignment ako, pahingi ng schematic at source code.."
