Yeah, tough to answer. Not everyone has the same talents and abilities. Plus there are some tech degrees that are, for lack of a better term, traditional, such as electrical engineering, and you might not have even considered those. I would actually put electrical engineering near the top of a hypothetical list for degrees likely to get you a good paying job, but one of my old roommates was an electrical engineering major and it was a lot of challenging work. Computer Science majors also have a pretty solid job market at the moment, and even most starting positions pay pretty well. Not all colleges offer the same tech oriented degrees, so make sure to look around.
