    What should I study

    Next year I'm going to go to college, here in my country (Argentina)

    I'd like to know which career should I study in order to, after graduating, attend to the Guildhall at SMU. My options are:
    -Computer Science.
    -and, systems engineer(It would be something like a computer engineering kind of career).

    I want to hear you opinions, thank you.

    This post has nothing to do with game programming.

    You give you the C++ base yourself by independent study. You won't learn a single language well in any CS-related study, since they're more focused on language-independent topics (as they should be).
    All the buzzt!

    I agree, most of what I know I've learned on my own. I'm still doing it. They provide a good foundation and some time to kill but they teach you at most the basics and where to learn more. Hell google will probably be a good start, as a lot of lessons (of various quality) are available.
