Which one of the 2 majors provides more powerful jobs
"MIS" or "Electronics" ?
What exactly does this "electronics" major entail? I've heard of electronic engineering, or a electrical engineering major but not simply electronics. Regardless, MIS is similar to what my dad does for a living and what I am currently studying. In general, (though you better do more research on yourself) it seems it will include programming business related systems SQL, setting up business networks/servers all that good stuff, so learning programming languages, probably courses in business, finance, admin, management (you know, that field). Whereas electronics is more hands on along with physics, calc, etc. Eitherway, do your research on both make sure you choose the one right for you, if not, you can always switch later on. Do you have a history in CS? It's not something that everyone can get, and I'm quite certain you need that in MIS, I'd look into that part for sure. As for jobs, it really depends on your area, opportunity, connections, and experience. For MIT, it also depends on how technical you are able, it would impact the sort of job you might land outside of Post-Secondary.
I'm not all too sure about my dad's work to be honest. I know he programs for banks in my area, however, he programs using an old language (one rare amongst the newer generation though I cannot remember which one) but one that banks (or just his bank) still utilizes so he is able to get a pretty good salary from that. He is in a pretty high position right now, two companies fought over him a few years prior. However, he fears he will be out of a job soon once the language is no longer used. I have talked to his colleagues and friends before, those who are in IT, MIT, MIS, Business, they're constantly telling me that IT-related jobs don't get much pay or as many job opportunities as they used to (MIS is somewhat related to IT if I'm not mistaken), as they are being outsourced to foreigners and immigrants from China and India. I'm from Canada btw, area does matter.
nice to see that, my uncle lives in canada. we are from Lebanon btw,i guest i'll tend to travel to some european or american universities fr the masters
thank you for all that, am now studying a double major Electronics and MIS, good in both but i want to focus on one major for the masters degree.
I don't know, however, much about jobs in the electronics field, opportunity, competition, etc, so I wouldn't be able to compare the two.
if you please tell me more about your dad work in the MIS field, if i can rely on it as a future career for good income and knowledge.
electronics major include microwaves,audio visual,...beside working in tv stations..
*as they used to when IT was newer and popular
