Re: Have you heard of this College?

I didn't take a lot of physics towards the end of my time in college. Just the freshman/sophomore sequence which the engineering majors had to take, and several optional courses like modern physics (basically an intro to quantum mechanics course for engineering majors) and an intermediate course on classical mechanics (mostly Lagrangian stuff).

The intermediate classical mechanics course actually helped quite a lot in understanding and appreciating the basic quantum mechanics stuff (in the modern physics course), which would otherwise seem like a "deus ex machina". (I took that intermediate classical mechanics course and also an "advanced math methods for engineers" course in the previous semester, before taking that modern physics for engineers course).
