This is probably an extremely awful question to pose at this point, but I feel lost. I'm in my Junior year at 4 year uni after transferring from 2yr college and the jump seems so huge. One of things that is giving me headaches a lot this semester is learning how to design with extremely little to no formal teaching or experience. I mean, for the first 2 years of my degree,the ONLY thing I learned about Electronics was what I got from my 2nd semester physics class as well as a general electrical science class. When I took these 2 classes, I learned a lot of theory and laws about magnetism, point charges, and the like, but I was never really taught how various electrical components in existence could be utilized and then directed as to how they would be implemented into a design. I can even analyze the circuits. I could tell you how much voltage/current is across a certain component, but I haven't the slightest idea how I could build a circuit from the ground up to accomplish a goal knowing just these things. Ugh, I just feel so overwhelmed. When I look at some of the EET students at my campus, they seem to know so much and how to reach their design goals. I want so bad to learn to design, but I feel as though my professors expect me to know so much when I've had experience with so little. Is it like this for most 3rd year EE students or is it just me? Can anyone give me advice?
