I'm currently enrolled in 4 year computer science BS program with a major in networking and hopefully a minor in programming. I am wanting to attain as much knowledge as possible, but am unsure of what the best route to take is. I will provide my plan and ambitions; any help or suggestions to aid my decisions would be most welcomed.
After receiving my BS in COSC w/networking major I am considering returning for another year+/- to receive a major in programming as well. After this I hope to attend Va. Tech to study for my masters. I figure my masters should take a year to a year and a half. I have recently considered going further, attempting doctoral studies.
I am not sure of good COSC doctoral programs on the east coast (maybe va tech offers it?). I am also wondering how a PH.D. will help me in the long run. I would love to work for a huge enterprise as the head network administrator, but I do not want to cross the line of being over qualified. That being said, I would like to fall back on teaching at a university during retirement.
Could someone more experienced and knowledgabel tell me the pros and cons of my plan?
Thanks a bunch!!
