The best advice I give you to give him, is to check the requirements for degrees in the various computer fields. You will find that most of the degree paths for computer degrees with share 1-3 classes. That is all the degrees require certain computer classes be taken to get any degree in the computer sciences. The next step is set up the majority of his classes as the undergraduate ones, the math, english, history, science classes that everyone has to take regardless of what degree they are going for. This will give him time to consider just what he likes and is good at in the computer field before declaring a major. It will also give him the oppertunity to speak with his professors and especially his professor in the computer class(es) he is taking to figure out what he wants to specialize in, and where there is a real demand in the job market. (Programmers are almost always in demand, Network technicians, not so much) Another very good resource for him to look into is the school or career counselers (whatever they are calling themselves these days) to his explore his options and see what they recomend. Hope that helps. Minnie Mouse is HOT! filmbuff

Hi. Its a good thing that you have determined already what your son loves to do. Im not sure if your son went through this in high school but they actually have orientations and seminars that will help student decide which course to take. If that wasnt able to him, ask the guidance office of the college in which you are planning to enroll him. They will be able to provide you with some overview before you decide in which course you will enroll your son and again, make sure your son is there to listen. They will provide you with a prospectus and the subjects that your son will be listed in. Ask them also about the careers that your son can take if he graduates from the course. But the important thing is, the last word will be from your son. He should decide which course he wants to take. Good luck..

if your son is techi person then just ask him to be a computer engineer. if he is interested in computers then he must definetly go for it. or he can choose for an IT professional course. there are many courses available just ask him in what he is interested ?? and ask him to select the course in which he can make his career bright.
