Hello I am currently an 8th grade student and I have some interest of being a software engineer. So my question is, what classes should I take in high school? My high school has classes that build up into knowing how to program and the classes are:
IT 1 ESSENTIALS,
IT 2 Cisco Networking part 1,
IT 3 Cisco Networking part 2,
IT 4 Workstation/server OS,
and finally Computer Programming- Java/visual basic.
But I'm also wondering if I should take engineering classes and those classes are:
FOUNDATIONS OF TECHNOLOGY EDUCATION,
COMPUTER AIDED DRAFTING AND DESIGN,
3D Engineering and Design,
architectural engineering and design,
and engineering design.
The ones that are all caps are the only classes that I can take in 9th, and I only can have two electives and I'm using one of those for Spanish so my overall question is which classes should I take to get into a job in software engineering? Thank you.
