A Comprehensive "Map of Electronics Engineering"

Summary:: I was wondering if there was a map of electronics engineering much like this does for physics (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZihywtixUYo).

I realise that looking at undergrad course outlines should give a decent picture of the field. However I am looking for a more comprehensive map which also includes the following :

  1. Fundamentals of the field (down to the underlying physics concepts)
  2. Extends to areas of application/ industry
  3. Sub topics and their categorisation
  4. A basic explanation of what each sub topic is about (for instance I was looking up a course outline and topics like "Signal Processing and Linear Systems" etc hardly ring a bell for a complete beginner like me much like "Interference" or "Network Analysis" would not ring a bell if I were to open a high school physics textbook before high school...)
  5. Possibly even a list of best resources to learn each subtopic from...
  6. In a parallel list prerequisites from mathematics for each area
  7. Highlights interdisciplinary areas (with computer engineering/ biology etc) as well as the 'frontiers' of the field...

I would be grateful if you could :
  • Link such a resource if it exists...
  • Give as much information as you can and I will try to compile it ( assuming this would be useful), although this would take me a while as I am a complete beginner...
Additionally, are there any introductory/casual reads which give an overall perspective about the field (much like Bill Bryson's A Short History of Nearly Everything)?
Thank you for your help!

Since you want to map to guide you to choose courses, I moved this thread to academic guidance.
