We've found that 71.5% of developers have earned a bachelor's degree. Furthermore, 19.0% earned their master's degrees before becoming a developer. While it's true that most developers have a college degree, it's generally impossible to become one with only a high school degree. In fact, one out of every nine developers did not spend the extra money to attend college.
Those developers who do attend college, typically earn either computer science degrees or electrical engineering degrees. Less commonly earned degrees for developers include computer engineering degrees or information technology degrees.
Some other companies you might be interested in as a developer include IBM, Accenture, and AT&T.; These three companies were found to hire the most developers from the top 100 U.S. educational institutions.
