What are some good computer/electrical engineering classes to take?

  1. Jun 14, 2014 #1
    I am a computer engineering major, and the core for EE and CpE are the same. The junior year is where the two programs begin to branch apart. There is an elective spot for a 2000+ class in my major. Which areas would be good to know about in today's workforce? Of course, I would be interested in classes like robotics, but what would be the most practical type of classes?

    Really, it depends on what the job is.

    If you really want to make a choice based on what you will use in the workforce, maybe do some job hunting and see what kind of skills are called for in your area. But I don't think it will be too bad if you just go for what interests you.

    Thanks. I really haven't started to narrow it down yet. I was just curious. I do find electronics and cyber security to be pretty interesting though.

    I would recommend taking a class in computer networking or FPGA design.
