Things To Know Before Studying Electronics
"I wish I’d known just how broad the subject is and how much of an impact the decisions made by electronic engineers can have on the design and function of millions of every day devices."
“Before I started studying Electronics I wish I’d known about all the opportunities that are available to school students related to this field. On a purely personal level, I think that it’s important to engage early with your potential career field. That helps you to decide whether you’re making a good choice and also helps you to meet your future colleagues.”
“I wish I had fully absorbed the little about Electronics that I was taught at school (one of the few things I actually tried hard for back in those days), and that I could have been exposed to it at a younger age than 18/19. University was very hard for me in the beginning because of this, but I pulled through.”
“I wish I had known Electronics was so wide-ranging and not repetitive at all. It is a very varied industry: depending on the applications your product is designed for, different sets of rules will apply and therefore your design will change completely. I also didn’t know how dynamic and how many young and talented people work in engineering companies; even though you don’t know anyone when you join a new company, it is very easy to get along with everyone.”
