Which programming language is the best for someone doing mechatronics?

I'm a University student doing mechanical engineering with the option to specialize in mechatronics. I've been doing html but I don't think it will help me that much in my career. So I need your advice guys.

Are fast languages, c# can do the job also


C++, c, java.


blackwinter Why? What about C#?


Mechatronics is a very wide field. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mechatronics However, since you are studying mechanical engineering I would presume that you are leaning more towards industrial automation. In that case you are more likely to be dealing with programmable logic controllers. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Programmable_logic_controller Under the IEC 61131-3 standard, PLCs can be programmed using standards-based programming languages. The most commonly used programming language is Ladder diagram (LD) also known as Ladder logic. See https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ladder_logic https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/IEC_61131-3 Your best bet is to not try to preempt the course syllabus but to concentrate on your studies and learn what is appropriate for the course. You can widen your knowledge later or specialise in a particular area when it is obvious that it will be of benefit or interest to you.
