Sometimes I get the impression that with a masters degree in computer science, electrical engineering or similar will with a very high probability land you a job you're very overqualified for, performing trivial tasks that you certainly didn't need an msc for. Is this accurate at all?

Specifically, I've been eyeing the Computational Science and Engineering type masters involving PDE:s, numerical analysis and simulations but also stuff like machine learning, combinatorial optimization, stochastic modelling, and most other comp sci/math hybrid areas.

I'm convinced I'd find it extremely stimulating. But some people make it out to sound as if those that pursue that type of degree either end up in grad school or with some job they're super overqualified for. Is this true?
