Courses C++ and fortran?

  1. Jan 2, 2017 #1
    My program only requires that I take C++ or Fortran. It seems like most students I have asked are only taking C++, I'm thinking of doing both. I'm planning on asking my advisor as well, but so far I've been really underwhelmed with my meetings with him. Thoughts? Thanks in advance!

    Once you learn one, you can learn the other. You're more likely to use C++ (especially if you wander outside of physics). Also, get a new advisor :-)

    Yes, no sense in taking courses in both, do C++, pick up Fortran on your own if you need to for some reason.

    Learn it all by yourself, nowadays no need for courses...
