Yeah it really depends on what type of stuff you're looking to do. The real high tech stuff is usually college level math and computer science. For instance, if you're looking at the famous Chmutov presets then you're looking at knowledge of basic raytracing setup (computer graphics course), approximation methods (a numerical methods course), and gradients (multidimensional calculus course) to say the least. On top of that years of experience with AVS and probably plenty of other related fields help. Of course you could learn this stuff on your free time, but you're not gonna get the same well rounded knowledge of the related topics which could be used in other presets.

If you want to do "tech" stuff then you're looking at a lot of math and a lot of programming... There's just no way around it.
