How much physics is involved in Computer Engineering?

<p>Here's my story:</p>

<p>I am good in Calculus 1 and 2 (I loved calc 2) and Physics 1 I was allright. </p>

<p>I made Bs in everything (with difficult professors) but now I am struggling with Calc 3 because vectors are soo boring and my professor is very difficult/harsh grader. </p>

<p>Now coming to Physics 2, Electricity and Magnetism is very difficult. </p>

<p>*If you are curious about my computer experience...</p>

<p>I had bad experience in programming since high school (my teachers quit), I took JAVA in college but didn't quite understand it (it was online). And I've been out of touch with hardware part of computers, I still remember some of the basic fundamentals.</p>


<p>How much physics is involved in computer engineering? Are all computer engineering classes going to be like Physics? Not a huge fan of electricity.</p>

<p>Any opinions are welcome.</p>

<p>Depends on if your school's degree program includes a lot of EE-type courses like device electronics and integrated circuits, as opposed to higher level hardware courses like digital systems and computer architecture and software courses.</p>

<p>@ucbalumnus: Are you saying EE courses (ex. circuit theory, linear systems and signals, electromagnetic engineering, solid-state electronic devices...) lean to physics more than CpE courses (ex. digital logic design, computer architecture, microprocessor applications and organization, algorithms)?</p>

<p>Yes, EE courses will be more directly related to physics and continuous math (calculus and differential equations). Computer science and engineering will be more like discrete math (and abstract algebra and number theory for some theoretical topics).</p>

<p>Expect more complex physics, and a lot of it.</p>
