    I start August 24th (which is too late, if you ask me!)

    I'm taking:

    1. Circuits and Signals III - Primarily deals with signal processing
    2. Communications engineering I - mathematical techniques for signal modulation and other aspects of telecommunications
    3. Physical electronics - properties of semiconductor devices
    4. Microprocessors lab - lab for microprocessors (involves semester long design project)
    5. Basic theory of statistics
    6. Either electricity and magnetism lab or introduction to modern physics.

    Depending on that last choice I'll either be taking 18 or 20 hours, so it should be a fun semester:biggrin:

    Grade 12 precalculus, physics, and chemistry. Prereqs for university physics next Fall.
    For anyone in high school here - finish the first time around! As an adult it'll cost you an arm and a leg!

    I graduated from High School just a month ago, in an Aeronautics course here in Italy, and I can tell you pretty easily, whatever you're going to do, take HS seriously. It is going to give you basis you'll need pretty much everywhere, whether you want to start working straight after graduation or either you want to continue in university.
    I didn't get much far, not even after a single month after graduating, without needing what I learnt lol, and simply because while calculating plane routes and flight mechanics you need Calculus, and that's what I'm going to meet first in uni, both in the introductory exams and the actual calculus course.

    And don't forget that if you manage to get a good grade (one that suits yourself) you will be having an easier time after that. Good luck!
