Computer Engineering teaches us how to repair a computer. That's a very common misconception. Computer Engineering deals with design, program and implement the computer systems which most of the times is not related to your desktop computers.
Programming comes as a natural talent. This false belief haunts many Computer Engineering students specially at the initial stages. It's not true. Programming is something that you learn over the period of time and you get better at it with practice. It's a skill that will take time to be learnt, stay patient.


Hard part of programming is to learn syntax. This myth again is mainly prevalent at the initial stages of Computer Engineering students and it often discourages them to learn new programming languages. The beauty of programming remains in the algorithms and designing solution for complex problems. The syntax part you can always learn with time.
Without being genius in Maths, you can't do programming. Maths is required but you don't have to be genius at it. If you are able to develop a critical thinking, attention to details and logical reasoning without being a superhero in maths and if your solutions are practical enough, you are on the right path to become a programmer.
Learning too many programming languages will make you a good programmer. It doesn't work that way. You have to dig in to the details of one language and spend good amount of time understanding the various aspects of that language. That is more important than to jump to the next language just for the sake of it.
