Main Question or Discussion Point

Hello, I'm looking for some advice over picking a class for my next semester. I am a Biomedical Engineering major, emphasizing in the more computational side of things. I am trying to decide on which computer science elective to take. I can either take Fortran or C++...which one is more relevant? Any advice would be helpful, thanks.

C++. It's just far, far more widely used than fortran (which mostly shows up in some scientific computing programs and libraries that are wrapped in or ported to C or python anyway), and slightly easier to learn. You can learn either language later once you've learned the first one, but you're much more likely to need C/C++.
