Absolutely not! Any IT degree qualifies you for most entry level positions but you will likely be exposed to other things as well. For example, if you were to get a job on Geek Squad for best buy, you would be doing just as much software and virus removal as any physical PC work. If you get a job as a tier 1 help desk technician, you will be responsible to resolve various types of PC problems, usually dealing with user error and not hardware.

I would suggest you be open to the various jobs available to you and not focus so much on only one aspect, such as hardware, but gain as much experience as you can on as many different IT topics to help you find the one you like the most!
