Hello Physics Forum, I just wanted to hear from some experienced Electrical Engineers on how much of the material covered in school are actually used in a real job. I am currently a junior in EE and have heard mixed responses from my professors pertaining to the issue. To make it less broad, the classes I have taken so far includes: linear systems, switching systems, electronics, electromagnetics and C++/Assembly. How much of the material from these classes will be applied or has been applied to your job? To be more specific, aside from C++, which of these/other courses will be useful if I were to pursue a career in the field of robotics?
