Studying Tips for information technology engineering (IT engineer)

  1. Jul 1, 2016 #1
    I had applied one month ago into some universities, with the aim of switching my university major. (I studied history). I went to the entrance exams for computer science and engineering oriented fields, and waited anxiously for 1 month.

    I was not sure whether or not my entrance exam score was good enough... I had a nagging feeling that the exam did not go so well...I had been waiting anxiously for the admissions results for over 4 weeks.

    But my score was good enough!. Today I was accepted into IT engineering program (bachelor of engineering). I live in Finland mind you... My test results were good enough to be accepted.

    So it seems therefore that I am able to switch majors effectively at this point and start information technology studies in the fall 2016.

    And on top of that tomorrow is my birthday and I will eat cake and play tennis and go kayaking and go swimming.:biggrin:

    What I was actually wondering about was that I want to self-study more about physics and math. I would need something that is more related towards information technology engineering for physics and math, because those seem to be the most relevant fields for my area of applied technology(???)
    I am a little bit worried about that kind of gap in my knowledge.

    The way that I got admitted into the university of applied sciences in the first place, was by self-studying math and physics for the entrance exam. I did not study high school physics or chemistry very much at all back in high school. I did study mathematics a long time ago in high school. I was maybe slightly below average or average back in the day in mathematics.

    On the positive side, it seems I am not totally bad or dumb in math because I was accepted afterall.:cool:

    Thanks for the post! This is an automated courtesy bump. Sorry you aren't generating responses at the moment. Do you have any further information, come to any new conclusions or is it possible to reword the post?

    I would like to get some suggestions for help for myself.

    I am interested in learning more about math and physics which is applicable for IT engineering.

    Perhaps I worded my post badly. Including the title of the thread.

    I think that some other people looked at my thread but they didnt have any tips, or possibly they were expecting to find tips in this thread for themselves.
