How important are higher degrees in a tech industry? Asides the obvious cases of very specialised companies that perform their own high tech research, does having different levels of higher education benefit the applicant (comparing for example, someone that has a collage degree, to BSc, MSc, D.Sc)?

It seems that higher education never hurts, but beyond that, it's hard to say how important it is. Really depends on what you're after in your career. It can be absolutely critical, it can be less important, but I'm not sure how to quantify it without applying it to something more specific.
