2nd Year EET

  1. Nov 6, 2008 #1
    Hey everyone, I have a few questions for any engineers:

    Do any of you ever get overwhelmed by all the information and tech. that is out there. It just seems like engineering is a field where it is impossible to know everything. Sometimes I think about what it's going to be like when I'm given a job and I get frazzled. What if I forgot too much of what I learned in school, or maybe I complete the job, but there's a way to make the product better that I haven't heard or know of?

    I'm doing alright in my program at the moment, I'm having fun playing with PLAs and MCUs using assembly code. I'm rather weak when it comes to circuit analysis or design, it's something I'm trying to work on; I try to go over circuits I find, but sometimes I just can figure out what's going on.

    It's fun learning all of this, but just knowing that I'll never learn everything is kinda discouraging (killing my motivation to learn).

    Thanks everyone!

    Bah, I'm a basket case, but I get really flustered easily, obviously. Is this a normal concern with most students, or is it just me?


    As a side question:

    I'm thinking about maybe taking some bridge courses to get an EE degree rather than an EET; if this is at all possible. My Prof., who is an EE, mentioned this to me and I was curious as to how I would go about doing this.

    I have never heard of anyone ever switching from EET to EE as and undergraduate. Is your EET program a BS degree? I was an EE major up till last semester then I switched to EET because I simply couldn't handle the EE program.
