If you want to get good knoweldge and experience in computing do a
physics or engineering course, here in DCU physicists and engineers
have Linux labs, are expected to know C and how to use tools such as
gcc and write Makefiles, shell scripting, gnuplot, and also learn about
the internals of how computers work, everything from the QM of transistors
and junctions to DSP. It is an excellent background from which to enter
computing and a common career path.
