An Introduction

  1. Jul 22, 2017 #1
    Hello all. I'm a retired Electrical Engineer graduated from University of MO-Rolla many years ago, with 8 credit hours short of a second degree in Physics and 4 hours short of another degree in Mathematics, following 4 yrs of US Navy Avionics Technician. I much preferred Electrical Engineering and particularly the applications of Physics and Electromagnetism.

    I've worked in aircraft applications, communications, industrial computerized and control systems research and development, mining, metals manufacturing, oil & gas refining, the lumber and paper industries, electrical generation and distribution, research and developmental projects and a few tangential areas such as a short term College teaching position in Introductory Physics and Electromagnetism Basics and development of 4 yr Electrical/Electronic Technician Apprenticeship-Training Programs.

    At the time of my graduation, the half-life of an Electrical Engineering degree was approximately 2 yrs which has led me to a permanent addiction to continued education. This Forum entices me to participate in order to continue feeding that need. Thank you for allowing me to participate.

    Welcome to the forum Zemphamy! Gee, I've actually been to Rolla, MO, went there years ago to see a client. Small world.

    Welcome from a fellow EE (which I last practiced some time in the early '80's)

    Thanks for the welcome. It seems that Rolla connects quite a bit of the technical, engineering, and research population.

    Thanks for the kind greeting. EE's seem to be a popular group.
