What if it's research-motivated as opposed to industry

Yeah maybe something trash-tier like programming

what the fuck is this commie shit. nerds in their basement have done more for computing than "researchers"
>tfw no cs degree, 21 , making just under six figures as sysadmin
>tfw 15% raise if I can learn ruby on rails within the next 7 months

Enjoy your shit career.

Math you can go on to apply to anything. Presumably you're already computer inclined, so you can still go on with your computer shenanigans, now with more advanced math.

Since it's a PhD. Math would be more helpful.

Over time you'll get better at CS in general while working. But implementing advanced algorithms and shit is only easier if you have a math degree.

Basically get a math degree because you'll eventually learn to be better at CS anyway.

And your CS degree will land you a career in fixing Betty in accounting's internet, and overseeing the next generation of CS students as they change toner cartridges.

whatever floats your boat

Math is more useful. I once saw a finance job for a math PhD that could code in java and the job was millions of pounds per year. (to program some stock buying software or something)

>> No.51978394

If you are truly serious about doing a PhD, do it in Europe, specifically Germany or the UK. That system you have in America is tantamount to legal slavery.

And it would only be worth it in maths in your case, a CS PhD is meaningless to almost every related career.

>> No.51978406

Is it literally just programming/CS that you can get without college? Can I land an EE job by watching youtube videos?
