Hi all at PF,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Hoping to get some help selecting final year subjects. I am interested in QIT. At the moment, I'm planning to go to grad school for theoretical physics. However, i am also trying to have a backdoor into a masters of computer science as it is a more realistic career track - i am also quite interested in AI. I am not sure how easy this transition would be without taking discrete maths and algorithms from selection (1), but including these subjects would mean i miss out on the math major.

Toss up is between:

A) Physics major and math major

B) Physics major with math minor and comp sci minor

Taken so far:

First year

Differential calculus

Integral calculus

Intro to stats

Linear algebra

Physics 1

Physics 2

Intro to programming - includes c and matlab

Second year

Vector calculus

2nd class on linear algebra - proof based

Intro to PDE

Real and complex analysis

Statistical model

Statistical tests

Physics 2-1

Physics 2-2

Planning to take:

Third year

Physics 3-1

Physics 3-2

Physics 3-3

Physics 3-4

PDE's

....

Here is where i need suggestions for my last 3rd year subjects:

1) Discrete maths or intro to algorithms and data structure or non linear ODE's or mathematical computing - (can choose 2 of the 4 but i would need to select both ODE's and math comp to finish a math major)

2) Abstract algebra (2nd year) or theory of computation - (can choose 1 of the 2)

Appreciate any help you can offer.
