Main Question or Discussion Point

I am a rising senior Physics Major who needs one more class to meet the credit hour requirement to keep my scholarship. These are the class that fit into my schedule that my adviser told me to look at:

Intro to Software Engineering - really just advanced C++, UML use, memory management, and implementation of data structures.

Algebraic Structures - your typical algebraic structure class

Circuits - A low level EE class about circuits with a lab. My adviser said this may help in build testing apparatus for the upper level physics lab I am taking.

I am also open to any recommendations from anyone here.

Are all of these classes on your required list or are they all elective courses? I would take something that fulfills a degree requirement for your next year over something that doesn't, given the choice. If they are all equal in this regard, then I would choose either circuits or software engineering.

Circuits was a very involved and difficult class for me when I took it, and I never use that material anymore in my day to day work. Anything with programming would have been more helpful to me because I still write programs routinely. Had I gone into a different specialty then everything might have been reversed.

Either way I think both have a lot of merit.
