Computer E for someone who does not like physics?

<p>I am a senior in high school and at the moment I want to become a computer engineer. I really enjoy math a lot. I don't know much about technology but I do have an interest in it and am willing to learn. However, I really am not a fan of physics . My school's physics class was a joke so it wasn't hard but at the same time I learned literally nothing. The problems we did sparked no interest and I found them to be boring and unapplicable to my daily life.</p>

<p>My question is should I just go through the 2 or 3 physics classes, or will physics be a reoccuring theme that I need constantly?</p>

<p>Also, I am going into college with ZERO programming knowledge. Will I be fine or should I start trying to learn it over the summer??</p>

<p>There isn't really any physics in computer engineering.
I mean, you will have to take a couple physics courses but I think that's manageable, right? </p>

<p>And don't worry too much about the 0 programming experience. But really, why not spend a couple days playing around with python or perl during the summer?</p>

<p>thank you so much! my family kept worrying me saying I needed a physics tutor NOW because I would be in big trouble. But if it's not even used that much I'm sure I get through the 3 classes no problem. thanks!</p>

<p>I'm not in CompEngineer, but I'm pretty sure you'll need Calc-based physics. It's almost like Electrical Engineering + CompSci.
Protip:Electricity is needed to run your computer. Do you really think the people who constructed the hardware had minimal understanding of physics? That's like saying you want to become a doctor, but you don't like chemistry.</p>

<p>If I were you I'd learn it over the summer so you can stress out less when actually in college. PM me for details, I can help you get started.</p>

<p>This crazy thing called Khan Academy, you should try it, its free.</p>

<p>You only have to take 2 semesters of physics at my school</p>

<p>Depends on your major. I'd imagine the requirement would differ between, say, a Physics major or a Computer Science major.</p>
