This is tardy and off-topic, but it might make a difference, so here goes: Luis, if you want to earn a degree in a highly technical area like engineering or computer science (the two for which I can speak) you should expect to spend many hours working on theory that seems far removed from what you plan to do with your life. And much of it will be, but the few bits that turn out to be important will be very important. There are large, important areas like computer graphics, encryption, and error correction that are deeply rooted in mathematics; others like network engineering are rooted in physics and Theory of Communication (yes, there is such a thing, and it is fundamental enough to have led to answers about black holes). Master the lower steps of these stairways, carved by giants, and you'll have shown you can master what you need. Expect to have fun -- but not the fun you expected. Not while in school. Good luck.
