Personal Help

  1. Nov 15, 2004 #1
    I have a love for building computers...I also have a love for the concepts of physics. I have been thinking about Quantum Computing. I am a strong math student. I am also a Junior in-highschool.

    What would be good Career choices, either in quantum physics in general, or in Quantum Computing:(Based on these aspects below)
    1. Amount of Money made- (Online I have only heard/seen national averages, but could someone who has actual knowledge from the area of work, or knows someone from that area of work.
    2. Should I take classes on the deep structure of computers?
    3. Best colleges for this area of study.
    4. Would it be good to take other classes to go along that would help me more with this? What would they be?
    5. I'm already in my 3rd year of french, which is a good language for science, and I plan on learning Russian and German (Maybe spanish also but spanish ppl become greedy). Does this seem wise?
    6. And anything else I'm forgetting.

    From the Full question above could you...Name which career choice that you think is appropriate. Why? and all of the questions u should be able to handle it.

    I have read many articles online about both. But it would be good to know fresh up-todate info, I am only finding stuff that hasnt changed in a few months. If you can find me, or can tell me where to get the info that would help most often.
