Computing field changes rapidly from time to time. My IT friends who graduated from Computer Engineering, Information Systems, etc, all need to learn regularly because the languages used in different situations are different.
And IT is just a broad name. It has a lot of subdivisions inside. One can be a programmer, a system analyst, a MIT manager, etc, all doing different types of tasks with different career prospect. It must be highlighted first so you have some brief understanding of this career field.
If you are interested in it, just keep on learning well from the normal lessons and try to explore more relevant softwares / languages that can be useful in long term basis. For instance, if your departmenr teach Pascal, then you can learn C++ yourself. If they do not teach any multimedia software, you can learn Dreamwaver yourself.
活到老學到老! This is my advice. So even you may study the relevant field in the university the later on, you still need to explore many different fields for knowledge is unlimited. It is similar to our teachers who need to learn regularly, read many reference books, attend many seminars and workshops, to cater for changes.
Hope I can help you.Source(s): Mathematics Teacher Mr. Ip

Perhaps I may give you some advice on it. I have been in this field for over 20 years. Computing, unlike any other academic subjects, keeps changing and it changes rapidly as technologies advance along time. It is going to be a life-long learning subject. I do mean it - it is a never-ending subject. Therefore, "what you like" should come first and then make a wise selection.
