Computer Mechanical Engineering

What kinds of computer classes should a mechanical engineering student take?

I don't know about specific classes, but I find the following things invaluable:

Matlab:
I was dragged into Matlab kicking and screaming. I prevented myself from learning it for a very long time, and would resort to any alternative for problem solving. I did this because of the fact that arrays start at one, and I found the functions hard to understand. Once I finally learned it, I was amazed at how fluid and easy it was.
Matlab is an amazing program because if you need a quick answer to a rather computationally heavy problem, you can boot it up and write the code to solve it in a fraction of the time that any other program would take. You can import and export data for excel, and make various types of graphs and simulation videos.

Excel:
What I love about excel is that it is so efficient at organizing data. I used to be a rather disorganized person, but I feel that having jobs that involved lots of data and excel (maintenance engineering at a parer mill) caused me to become a more organized individual. Almost every computer has it, and you can easily analyze or present data with quickly made graphs. There are always more tricks and shortcuts to learn about excel, and so many possibilities to solve problems. I will give some examples.

Conditional formatting - Allows you to create various forms for purchasing or accounting, but can also be used to find duplicates and compare lists, or groups of lists rather efficiently.

Pivot tables - Originally used for sorts data and accounting, but can also be used to categorize values, or count occurrences and pinpoint anomalies.

VBA - This can be a rather overwhelming programming language, and I wouldn't advise learning it if you aren't prepared for a lot of stress of trying to find out what your errors mean. Debugging in VBA is very time consuming, because there are many different names for the same function, yet certain ones can only be used in specific scenarios, and the errors are very vague. If you can get through this though, you can create programs to do your work for you, and can even send it off for other people to use.
