College elective classes?

  1. Apr 14, 2010 #1
    I'm currently in a transfer program at my local college. I have a few choices on what electives to take for my engineering degree, and I'm looking towards mechanical engineering (I'm fairly sure it will be mechanical but it's possibly I may go for electrical in the future). I was wondering which of these classes would benefit me the most?

    9-12 credits from the following:

    Programming in C for Engineering ... 3 credits
    Statics ..................................... 3 credits
    Mechanics of Materials ................ 3 credits
    Thermodynamics ........................ 3 credits
    Dynamics .................................. 3 credits
    Circuit Theory ............................ 4 credits
    Digital Logic Design ..................... 4 credits
    General Physics 3 ....................... 3 credits

    All of the classes you have listed (except for digital logic maybe) are absolutely required for an ME curriculum. So take your pick...

    I have touched on all those topics during my time at University. Apart from programming in C (which I believe I will touch upon during my final year as I'm going into robotics.

    Personally I would take statics because it provides the fundamental basics for many of the upper level ME classes.
