What classes will I be taking in my freshman year?
Many (not all) engineering programs are very similar for the first 2 years. There are certain major courses that you may have to take...like programming for electrical or computer engineering or o-chem for chemical engineers...but freshman year basically consists of the following:
- Math!!!...(Calculus: derivatives, integrals, series and sequences, vector calculus...)
- Chemistry...don't worry, just the basics
- Physics...Some programs will push you in right away, others will wait until the end of your freshman year...it just depends
- A basic programming course... Don't fret, I didn't know what "Hello World" was either...
I know it may be sad that you won't take "actual engineering courses," but this is a time for you to explore different majors and subjects. Take advantage of it. Plus! The "real engineering courses" expect that you know EVERYTHING from these first two years...don't be a cocky freshman...take your time!
