    choosing school...


    HI ALL

    I'll continue my study at the engineering school (studying mechanics-

    electrics) after a selection using score but the problem

    that I love hacking and I want to continue my study at the engineering

    school of computer . Some friend tell me that it will be a good idea to

    study mechanics-electrics after that I can continue to learn computer

    science because I'll be able to write very good programs for solving

    mechanics and electrics problems more than programmer who doesn't

    study mechanics and electrics .


    What do you think ?

    As for me I love hacking and I want studying computer science .

    What do you suggest ??? I need your help

    Life is too short to waste your time in a job you don't love, go with what your inner voice tells you

    I went to school for a computer science degree with an emphasis in software development because that's what made me happy. I now have a job in software development and I'm very happy with it. I agree that you should go for what you like to do.

    When I get older I would love to work with computers but I personally hate math, I cannot work with it or reason with it. Thus, computer science is far out of my league and then I probably won't get to work with computers. As for jamel - just do what you want to do, there are people out there that go to their jobs every single day and really hate it. Eventually you hear about these people taking out entire post offices with sub machine guns too

    Ah! Not so! I too hate math and did horrendously at it. I am however quite good at logic. The two are not necessarily interdependent. Despite popular opinion, not all aspects of computer science require you to use or even know complex math on a day to day basis. Programming, for instance, relies mostly on critical thinking and logic skills. If you're good at breaking down problems into smaller, manageable tasks, the syntax of the code is an afterthought. The most math I use writing Java,C, or C++ programs day to day is basic algebra.

    As for me I love math but some good programmer say that you don't

    need all math ( just a bit of it ) to become a great programmer about this

    issue you can this link :

    http://www.paulgraham.com/college.html

    and here (from this web site too) you can read more :

    http://www.paulgraham.com/undergrad2.html

    Maybe ES Raymond can give you the right and short answer :
