Some basic math skills will definitely help. For example, the use of functions in intermediate college algebra has a direct analog in computer programming. More importantly, the ability to think abstractly and to develop analytic abilities will have a payoff in software development as well as in diagnosing problems with computer hardware.

Unless you plan to work in support of engineering or another of the physical sciences, college math beyond intermediate algebra is probably not necessary.
