MATLAB is very good and probably slightly more useful for your purposes than Mathematica, though both could be useful.

Also, learning to program in C is never a bad idea.

Thanks djeikyb.
I learnt a bit about both MATLAB and MATHEMATICA, like you suggested MATLAB is very helpful for me. I am planning to join a course for the same shortly.
And regarding programming in C, I learnt C and C++ last year (not a pro though )

You can use Octave as a free alternative to MATLAB. You might also want to look at Eagle for circuit design, which is also free, and if your university has it, Labview.

I don't see mathematica being particularly useful.

Am I the only one here irritated by the use word "softwares" instead of "programs"?

Is "softwares" a correct word?

You are correct, Borek. Softwares is not a word - 'software' or 'programs' would do me..
