In summary, it is possible to become an electrical engineer with just a math degree. However, additional courses in engineering may be necessary to gain the required knowledge and skills. Important math courses for an electrical engineering degree include calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and probability and statistics. While a strong background in physics can be helpful, it is not always necessary. Some important skills for an electrical engineer include critical thinking, problem-solving, attention to detail, and good analytical and mathematical skills. With a math degree, job opportunities for electrical engineers can be found in various industries such as power generation, telecommunications, and aerospace. Common job titles for electrical engineers include power systems engineer, control systems engineer, and electronics engineer.

No, you can't be an electrical engineer with a math degree.

Your question and post makes no rational sense.

You claim to be "interested" in electrical engineering, but feel that it isn't worth getting a degree in (not sure why!). You also are more interested in math (at least, you think you do since you haven't done a lot of mathematics, really).

So why the heck does this question even come up?

And no, you cannot be an engineer with a math degree, no more than you can be surgeon with a math degree.

Zz.

You could do a master degree in EE with a math degree, but by itself it wouldn't leave you with the skills required for an EE job.

There is no way that you can do either math or EE if you cannot do fractions. You need basic math proficiency before worrying about math vs. EE.rrbrisbo89 said:there's still things I don't know how to do like fractions etc

Thread closed.

Yes, it is possible to become an electrical engineer with a math degree. However, you may need to take additional courses in engineering to gain the necessary knowledge and skills.

Some important math courses for an electrical engineering degree include calculus, linear algebra, differential equations, and probability and statistics. These courses provide the foundation for understanding the principles and concepts of electrical engineering.

While a strong background in physics can be helpful, it is not always necessary to become an electrical engineer. Some universities may require physics courses as part of their engineering curriculum, but others may not. However, having a basic understanding of physics principles can be beneficial in understanding electrical concepts.

Some important skills for an electrical engineer include critical thinking, problem-solving, and attention to detail. Additionally, having good analytical and mathematical skills is important for understanding and analyzing complex electrical systems.

Electrical engineers with a math degree can find job opportunities in a variety of industries, including power generation, telecommunications, aerospace, and more. Some common job titles for electrical engineers include power systems engineer, control systems engineer, and electronics engineer.
