Hello guys

Am a new member, and from a 3 world country. and i have been having serous doubts about the way engineering is taught here where i come from. and frankly it feels like am the only one here who cares, and at the fear of sounding paranoia-ed to everyone i know, i am seeking knowledge for this problem elsewhere. some where out of my country where i might find a good answer.

So my question is what is the right order in witch you take your science classes in the first two years of an Engineering degree ?

the subjects am talking about are:

1.cal 1

2.linear algebra

3.physics 1

4. deferential equations

5. chemistry

6. calc 2

7. calc 3

8. physics 2

of course lab 1 and lab2 physics and chemistry lab

where i come from, witch i think its wierd the way they do it here.

they take semester 1: calc1,phy1,lab phy1, english,

semester 2: is calc2,phy2,,chemistry, linear algebra

semester 3: calc3, deferential equations

and then life goes on, is this right, well i went through this and i felt that i could have learned more if took calc 1,2 before physics 1 and linear algebra, deferential equations and calc 3 before phy 2, and i have searched on many curriculum in US universities and i found them to be close to what am saying yet there are some Universities who are a bit different maybe they have better students. but where i come from , our high school education is not really that good and the shift from highshcool level to Uni level is quite a jump considering the the text books that where using in uni our high school books in comparision look more like children coloring books !!!

and am quite amazed that though every one is complaining about how hard the curriculum is nobody like me is linking this unnecessary hardness with the fact that we might be taking the courses in the wrong order.

so can somebody shed some light on this matter
