<p>I'm an incoming freshmen to RPI and I just read the first semester planner and I'm not sure which classes I should take. I want a job that I think is fun and I want to deal with computers but I think creating Ipods and Flashdrives can also be fun. I want to know what makes electronics, specifically computers, work. </p>
<p>My question is, which of those majors should I take? RPI has one of the best IT programs, but I'm still not sure what that is. I enjoy groupwork, but would IT end up making me work by myself taking care of databases? That sounds like the biggest bore of a job and I wouldn't really want to spend the rest of my life doing that. </p>
<p>Which of those lets me deal with technology, specifically but not only computers, and work in groups for projects (as a future career possibly?) And if I wanted to work in a museum or something similar, do computer/electrical engineers have any jobs in them? That's just a side question.</p>
<p>I plan to minor in business as well and possibly take a dual major in two of the fields I mentioned, but I also plan to take the co-terminal master's program in 5 years, so from what I read a dual major is pointless since companies only really pay attention to the master's degree, is that true?</p>
<p>The Comp Sci/Electrical Engineering/Computer Engineering courses are pretty much similar, but I was thinking if it's worth it to also take ITWS-1100 Introduction to Information Technology to get an understanding of what IT is.
