You learn java in TEJ at your school? Thats odd, ICS is supposed to be the programming one. Either language is good, you'll probably learn the other eventually if you stick with programmin so take your pick. There are established games written in both languages.

You'll also want to look up physics/game engines like Unity3D.

java is the best language to develop video games, but if you were able to select both courses then I will suggest you to learn both C++ and java.

I believe C# combined with unity is popular for video game development. Since both C++ and Java have a lot in common with C#, either language or both languages will help.

As far as courses go, unless you have an interest in computer hardware, computer science is more relevant to game programming than computer engineering.

Yeah, Java is the best language to develop video games, themes, plugins and many more.
