I'm a 20yr old college student majoring in electrical engineering. Should I be learning Python or C++?

I'm a little confused as to which language I should learn. The first class I had to take covered the basics of Python. Then the next class forgets all of that and starts us off with C++.  I don't know which one I should be learning now. Who knows, maybe the next class will abandon C++ and start with Java. I'm an EE student but CS is still a big part of it and I still want to learn it. I feel like I'm leaning more towards Python because it's a lot easier and I've seen numerous articles on why it's the programming language of the future. But idk. I'd like to hear what other people think. Especially another EE.

    Python is much easier when compared to other Programming language,and its widely used nowadays.Learning C++ ,Java still helps you in understanding OOP's concepts and complicated concepts in programming.

    Python is easier and faster to learn so they are starting you off with that.

    C++ is still popular but you should ask the lecturer to switch to Rust because by the time you graduate C++ will be deprecated and Rust will have taken over by then.

    You should ask your faculty advisor. Unlike us, your faculty advisor is in a position to evaluate how courses work with each other at your particular college, and with your major.

    Python is quite easy to learn. But I think you should start with C++, so that you will get familiar with OOPS concepts which will be very useful while learning python
