Admission: bias in programming or mathematics?

Hello! The applicant asks for your help...

This year I am applying (university - NSU, if it helps with the answer), so the question arose of choosing a faculty and, along with it, the direction of training.

There are two options:

1) Mehmat - a lot of mathematics, there is no programming as such - they give the basics, and then only to help solve the mat. tasks. The output is a rather strong mathematician, however, according to the students, he does not know what he will do in the future. I see two ways out: either go to a master's program for data analysis, or simultaneously learn programming on your own in the learning process (which, again, according to the students there, is rather problematic, although real, due to the workload in mathematics).

2) Fak. information technology (FIT) - the first two courses build a mathematical foundation, in the third and fourth years there is a distribution by departments, which are all somehow related to programming (testing, processors, microcontrollers, .NET, etc.), and there is much less mathematics . The emphasis is on development.

From the wishes for the future: I would like to receive such training that will allow me to change the field of activity in programming with the completion of some features / patterns of a particular area, and not something fundamental; solve research problems or create something of your own. Specifically, now I can’t name the area where I would like to be, alas :(

So the question is: what direction will allow me to stay afloat in the future and eventually choose even some specific area of \u200b\u200bactivity - a lot of mathematics + self-study programming or a balance of mathematics and programming directly at the university? Will I lose that very fundamental mate. Mechmat training, choosing FIT, if we take into account the fact that the programming knowledge gained there will sooner or later become obsolete anyway?

PS If it is important for someone: the competition for FIT is higher than for the Mekhmat, + - by 15 points - guys with higher scores go there.

Thanks for the answer!

If you like mathematics, and even more so, if you have a desire to solve complex problems, and not make forms on websites, then the choice is obvious.

Mathematics will help develop thinking, and will give a good knowledge base that will be useful in any area of it, and even more so in research. Machine learning, etc. They won’t teach you the programming language at the university

anyway, and you will have to learn everything on your own, but on the contrary, mathematics should be taught very well.

You will learn the programming language in half a year later) And the one you need, according to your tasks
