    This is where I should have put the thread originally.

    I was just curious how many fellow electrical engineers there are among us here on the HTF. A/V systems are what got me interested in engineering in the first place, and some discussions on this forum have helped me better understand what I thought I already knew pretty well!

    To date I know of two EE's here, one who is a DSP engineer. There must be more, or am I not supposed to blow our cover?

    Funny, the people graduating from my school now who did essentially the same degree as I did are graduating as Computer Engineers. I graduated as an Electrical Engineer-Computer and Communications option (as opposed to the traditional 'power/utility' option). They all called us "C&C's".

    I did Software Engineering, but the Engineering electives I did were all Electrical. I just wish I paid more attention [​IMG]
    Cheers,

    Still waiting for my grades... If I passed all of my courses this semester, then I'll be a Computer Engineer. [​IMG]

    EE - 1991 Georgia Tech grad. I believe that Patrick Sun is also a EE GT grad, but he may be ME, I forget (sorry Patrick!)
    The amount of information I've forgotten on EE since college is somewhere close to 99.99% [​IMG]

    I'm a mechanical bod, but my old man's a sparky. I think his current 'specialist subject' is the support hardware for CCD equipment. Mine's destructive testing (unofficially [​IMG])

    A Snivel Civil? I heard Civils called "Plummers" though (as mentioned in the Plummer's Hymn), and of course I've heard of the term Sparky (since I am one). We even had a little paper called the Sparky Times chock full of inside jokes and irreverent humor. I recall reading a snide poem about Civils in one issue... [​IMG]

    I got a Batchelor of EE at GT, but I hung around and got a MS from the IE school just because I could.

    Purdue BSEE (actually went to Indy campus which is where I live).
    Just got laid off by Thomson (RCA). [​IMG]
    Since Indy is pretty low in EE work I am planning on getting my MS in CS so I can still live in Indy and find a job.

    I have a BA in physics and an MA in applied mathematics but went on to practice as an EE for many years. Now I'm a patent attorney which uses the EE skills as well.
