There's more then one language you should know to be a good programmer.

I know C++ on the pc to write more "professional" :p applications. VB when it needs to be done really fast. x86 assembler isn't used that much anymore cause modern pc's are so fast they make the speed diffirence between hi-level code and assembly so small.

For µControllers assembly is more important due to space and speed limitations.

BUT!, a good assembly knowledge of a certain system will help you understand the system itself better, wich is always a good thing, even when programming hi-level languages

One language you didn't mention was Delphi, it's excellent for programming a PC under Windows, and probably as easy as VB.

As Exo says, you probably really need to know more than one language, and for micro-controllers a working knowledge of their assembler is essential, even if you never actually program in assembler!.

you say electronic Eng so I assume you are a hardware person and not a software engineer.

The only language then is VHDL.

ASSEMBLER good if you are working with CPU's but only valid for that family of CPU's so you dont really learn ASSEMBLER
If you are after a language to aid in calculations and stuff I get by with Excel and a bit of VB.
