I know after Electricity and Magnetism there's Electromagnetic Waves, but I never encountered any course on vibrations and mechanical waves in my school's catalog for electrical engineering.

So I'm thinking of studying this on my own, just for fun. However, I'd like to know how relevant it is to EE so I thought I'd ask here. :)

although waves are important to studying EE, this particular course looks like it has somewhat limited usefulness for your studies. it does, however, look like it might be fun.
:cool:

Limited huh..

I'm thinking now I should devote the time for that course to study linear algebra (there are also mit video lectures on it) or pick a self-learning book for C++. Man if only I used my time in high school well. :grumpy:
 
I feel that all information is good information. you never know what direction your work will take you. if you had told me I would be working in electromagnetics when I was in college I would have laughed it off, but here I am...
