For undergrad, that's more than you need.

So next is complex analysis? Is that pure math or applied math?

That being said, some of the key starting points are linear algebra, differential equations (ordinary and partial), and complex variables.

Basically piggybacking off of lurflurf "One always seems to have more mathematics to learn than time to learn it."

It can go either way. Typically, complex analysis is usually introduced to engineering undergrads as part of vector calculus.

Is complex variables a hard course?

If you take a math majors complex analysis, it is going to be a stranger version of real analysis which is all proof based.

Now some find doing proofs hard, some find it challenging but fun.

"MATH 4180 - Complex Analysis

...

Students interested in the applications of complex analysis should consider MATH 4220 rather than MATH 4180; however, undergraduates who plan to attend graduate school in mathematics should take MATH 4180.

...

Theoretical and rigorous introduction to complex variable theory. Topics include complex numbers, differential and integral calculus for functions of a complex variable including Cauchy's theorem and the calculus of residues, elements of conformal mapping."

"MATH 4220 - Applied Complex Analysis

...

Undergraduates who plan to attend graduate school in mathematics should take MATH 4180 instead of 4220.

...

Covers complex variables, Fourier transforms, Laplace transforms and applications to partial differential equations. Additional topics may include an introduction to generalized functions."
