Courses EPhysics major taking 6 courses in CS/SE -- Which to choose?

  1. Aug 11, 2016 #1
    I'm an Engineering Physics major (basically the same as Physics) and recently I've developed an interest in working as a programmer. I will be allowed to take 6 additional CS/SE courses and I wanted to ask you which should I choose, that satisfies the following conditions:

    -They will give me marketable skills.

    -I've already taken two computational physics courses, and one numerical methods course. So preferentially it cant be about this sort of stuff.

    -I will have something to bring to the table given that I know a lot of physics and mathematics (consider my major vs the regular CS major). I consider this important because in this way the knowledge acquired during my major won't be useless and will make me competitive against regular CS majors.

    What should I choose? I'm pretty sure I'm going to have a huge variety of options because I'm going to do an int exchange to a good university for CS and I've already seen their available courses.

    As far as I know, these will be the available courses

    thanks

    Im going for international exchange though, I dont think the university will grant me a minor.

    edit: I think I understand your point now, hehe.

    If not, choose your six courses from that list.
