Having no experience in comp sci courses in high school, would a comp sci minor be doable?
I am considering taking AP Calculus AB for my senior year, the other option is to take AP Statistics. Based on my future major and minor I would like to decide which math to take.

Best of luck!

You may even decide you want to focus on another engineering area and get a more substantial background in computer science to help you down the road. Many engineers need a computer science background to program/simulate projects. For example, a person in aerospace that can program their own, math-intensive simulation can rise well above their colleagues in their position simply because they can work with the data at hand more quickly and efficiently. You could also focus on finance or insurance industries as both industries can benefit from a math background and rely heavily on computers.
