    Having knowledge of programming languages are very useful. Low-level programming languages such as Fortran or C++ are useful, but not always required. At least learn a high-level such as Matlab, you'll use that quite often.

    I'd also like to add that, beyond the specific syntax of a language, learning how to program will teach you a way of thinking that is very important for engineers.
