We have spent first year doing java and now the second year is going to be c++ what is the point? [/quote:ed21707227]

If you do any soft eng course you will be or at least, should be, doing exactly that. Sure, you stick with one language the whole time, you might know it slightly better. If you do several languages, you’re in a much much better situation. Having Java and C++ means you’ll be able to go into mobile phone or pc / console programming, whereas you’d be restricted with just one of them. Learning several languages makes you much more knowledgeable abut how languages work and how to go about learning new ones. This is absolutely vital to you getting a job. If you’re a one trick pony, you’re not going to get any coding jobs. I don’t know anything about the couse, but your comments about the above subject are very misguided.
