Ask HN: How to choose the right university subjects for a career in IT
4 by Eugeleo | 0 comments on Hacker News.
Hello. I interest myself in programming and I’ve been dabbling with many languages (Swift, Python, Haskell), reading books and doing little projects (mainly Code Wars-type, or small apps for iOS). Soon I will have to decide on what university I go, and what exactly I’ll study. But how do I choose? There’s so many things that sound really interesting – systems programming, data science, bioinformatics… And no way to try them out beforehand! I need to plan some rough route at least, which I’ll refine once I get my bachelor’s degree (e.g. I can go general IT now, and choose AI for masters; or go bioinformatics now etc.). I have nobody to ask, because nobody in my proximity understands this kind of stuff, not even teachers. What would you advice me to do?
Thank you very much for help.
