why would you choose calpoly over berkeley? one is a no-name second tier public and the other is an internationally renowned. you can always switch majors if you don't like engineering.
Well of course I would choose Berkeley over Cal Poly, but I'm just being realistic and assuming I wouldn't get into the top engineering school as an engineering major when I'm not a math genius or anything.
Is computer sciences toward the same thing as electrical engineering? Because ideally I'd love to work with computers in the future and still be successful. My parents have tried pushing the "become a doctor" speech like typical asian parents ever since I was little and it's really not even in the realm of my interests.
I'd suggest Computer Engineering; it's pretty much half Computer Science and half Electrical Engineering
I'm a first year at cal poly computer science major; I took CPE 101 because I thought about switching to computer engineering but I'm not too interested in the hardware aspect. The reason I chose cal poly is because of the "learn by doing" and its a great engineering (computer science is part of the college of engineering here)/great in general school; last quarter we made apps for android it was pretty sick imo
I didn't take Calc my senior year in high school because the teacher was a hard ass but theres hella resources here like free tutoring, office hours, study groups yadida and I pulled through with an A for my calc 1 class (equivalent to Calc AB? in hs, but we learn it here in just 10 weeks)
