    No degree, only a diploma in computer science

    well, I got as far as an associates degree in Computer Systems Management (which is pretty much programming for a business environment)

    but yeah, for now I'm idling, and pretty soon I'm gonna go for B.S./M.S. compsci

    I was a Comp Sci/Math double major. I got a Bachelor's Degree from VA Tech, no specialization.

    2 months away from BSc. Science, Specialization in Computer Science

    I'm considering an M. Math in Computer Science after but making money also has its appeals.

    I have a BA with a major in Computer Science and a minor in Mathematics.

    I specialized in virtual machines, computer languages, and computer architecture.

    I got my BA in 1981.

    After that, I went to work for Digital Equipment Corporation where I went from being a computer scientist to a Software Engineer, learning the ropes of software engineering from some of the people who invented it.

    I'm now a Senior level software architect/engineer.

    I worked about halfway through a math/computerscience program at a university, thought it was a waste of time, now I'm enrolled in a marine engineering program at maine maritime academy.
    I'm not immature, I'm refined in the opposite direction.
