I don't think we can pick for you - this could affect your entire career! Which are you more interested in developing with? What do you want to be using your programming knowledge for after college?

I don't think that choosing by demand would make you happy in the future.
What i can do tell you about demand is that the market is flooded with half-baked or not so good programers, so there is always demand for people who is really good in what they do so, my advice would be to pick the topic that shows the best of you, and they are equals in that untie the score choosing the side which makes you feel better about yourself when you do it.

If you have already studied JSP and Android you go for advance programming especially in Java. In market, demand for Java developer is increasing day-by-day. If you have strong concept of J2SE, then JSP would be a plus point for you. Later on, you can learn any framework of jsp like Spring MVC or hibernate etc. to get strong hold on Java web development.
I do the same in my final year project and now I'm strong in development any kind of applications like desktop and web application in Java.

My Computer Science degree told them I had the capacity to learn IT STUFF....from there, they molded my talents to benefit the company.
When choosing a career path...always choose what you enjoy.

There are only two things I can tell you that will help you:
1. You will only get out of school, what you put in.
This means that if you slack off, don't expect to be a good programmer. Put in the work, and put in extra work to make sure you understand it thoroughly. For example: When I was learning C++, I did the required exercises, but also did some other things to make sure I had it down solid before the next day. One night, while learning pointers to pointers, I was up late, making sure I had it. By the time I had my epiphany and was ready to go to bed, the alarm went off to get up to go to school.
2. You will learn more in your first job than you did in 4 years of college.
In college, you will learn how to program. In the real world, you will learn how to be a programmer.

My opinion on education is that it is best to focus on the more generic skills like math, concepts and inter personal skills. Later in life you can always adopt specific applications based on the general skills and knowledge you have mastered at school.
PS. I think it is a bit strange to study Android at uni. Thats sound to me like a car mechanic taking the course BMW.

So uni shouldn't teach java because there are also pascal, lisp and prolog out there?
I'm a System developer at XLENT Consultant Group mainly working with SugarCRM.
Please DO NOT send mail or PM to me with programming questions, post them in the appropriate forum instead, where I and others can answer you.

An informed decision seems wise.
