Computer Science + Math Guidance

  1. Feb 22, 2012 #1
    Okay so I was recently accepted to Cornell University's Computer Science program (engineering). I plan on becoming a software engineer when I graduate, but am unsure of what path I should take. From what I've seen, only a computer science degree is needed, but I would think that more math would be to my advantage. Is it advisable to get maybe a minor in Math? Then I'd end up with a Masters or pHD (unsure of which would be best) in computer science and a math minor. I find math to be pretty intuitive, and am self study Calculus BC (Calc II) while in Calc I.

    Any advice on the best path to software engineering would be a great help. Also if their are any classes or certifications I can earn to add to my resume, I'd be very interested.

    Thank you in advance!
