I grew up in a town of engineers who fixed their own cars and televisions. My dad, FWIW, was not one of them.
One particular EE impressed me so much I decided to make it my field of study. That was until I started taking specific classes in the curriculum, and found it all too abstract.
Talking with him later, he smiled & told me all the useful stuff he knew he had taught himself.
I ended up graduating with a BSME, and went to work as a System Engineer.
My title is now “Test Engineer” with a focus on developing control system software. I enjoy what I do.
In the meantime, I still fix cars, tinker with electronics, and have restored a vintage Airstream.
