Work on a project. That's the absolute best way to learn. Pick something that you're somewhat interested in, like maybe developing an app for your computer or phone, making an amplifier for your guitar, headphones. Or maybe something that involves both hardware and software, like making some kind of USB thing for your computer that involves making a circuit board and programming a microcontroller. Pick a project, and make sure it's not something too crazy like inventing whatever gadget and it's going to be better than anything out there, and then do the research to make it happen. I've been an electrical engineer for years. One time I lost my job and felt my skills were too specialized and somwhat out of date. So I really wasn't doing well on interviews. Then I picked a project and started working on it. It was a USB audio mixer. It involved leanring about microcontrollers, making a circuit board, and then doing software to interface it with my computer. I never finished it. But working on it sharpened my mind and gave me more confidence to to into those interviews and answer questions. And I eventually got a job. There are guys I know who are hackers and never spent a day in college. They don't exactly get the power jobs. But they start at technician level and then work up. That might be an option for you too. But they're really enthused about what they do, electronics, and learn however they can. Also ask yourself why you didn't pick much up. Was it that you weren't inetested in electronics? If that's the case, picking up books at this point probably isn't going to help much because I think you'll just put them down as quickly as you picked them up. Let your interest drive you here. What do you want to do? Where do you want to go? There are many jobs in the industry that don't involve much technical knowledge that your degree can help you get. You could go into marketing or sales, technical writing, customer relations etc. It's also possible that you don't know what you want to do and where you want to go. But that realization is not going to drop onto your head whle you're at home surfing the web. You have to try somethings and find out. The first things you try may not be what you want. But then you'll have some very valuable information, you'll know what you don't want. Good luck.

No, it won't help. The minimum expectation for education in electronics engineering is a BSEE from an ABET accredited program, but a masters degree can be preferred. Going to a community college to prepare for transfer into an accredited BSEE program can help. An AAS often is not good preparation for transfer to a BSEE, and it can involve taking a lot of classes that aren't transferable to a BSEE degree program, thereby delaying your degree for no purpose whatsoever. If an AAS is where you're going to stop, then you might as well not even start. Taking out loans for the final 2 years of a BSEE is worth doing. Why? Because loans that enable you to get the minimum education required for a career can be repaid. Getting a degree that's below the minimum required is a much bigger waste of time and money even if you can do it without loans - because it still won't enable you to achieve your objective. Getting a loan for four years of high expenses to get a worthless degree - that's bad. Getting a loan for two years of reasonable expenses to get a worthwhile degree - that's good. It's not the loan - it's what you do with the loan that counts.

I hate how people knock the associates degrees. When I hire techs, I hire people with AAS degrees in that field because they are the best people for troubleshooting, maintaining and integrating. Engineers are taught to test, analyze, research and it normally takes them alot longer to fix something. I have two engineers with bachelors degrees as technicians. Yes they can fix something but most of the time they take three times longer than my other techs. My other techs are fast and reliable with repairs. One just got a job with a Hospital in Florida making $65,000/yr as a Biomedical Electronics Technician. Now, With all that said I do have to say...It is worth it to go on to get your bachelors...even if it means 40K in loans. You can make good money with the AAS program (So long as its still ABET certified). But, you get to make the big bucks and be in charge of new and exciting things when you are a full Engineer. If you want to make the money, just go ahead an take the loans out to get your BSE.

Personally, I think associate degrees are worthless and so do a lot of employers. Think about it... you're going to spend money on a worthless degree when you won't have a job. It's throwing money you don't have away. Now if you want to do an associates degree when you have secured a new job, then by all means go ahead.

Be patient. Not many interviewers ask difficult questions these days. Get a job first of all, but companies don't expect miracles from a new graduate. They will usually put you to doing something under the direct supervision of an experienced engineer so you can learn on the job. I graduated as a physicist, and got a job as a night shift production supervisor, from which I moved to day shift, then to a programmer's job, then to a design engineer.

Aston Originally Answered: Why do all majors including engineering expect students to learn how to write essays?
To show that you're capable of the following: - organization of ideas - critical thinking - understanding and expressing the cohesion of events, ideas, thoughts - demonstrate proper grammar, spelling, punctuation, etc which, sadly, many people are not...

It is called "effective written communications". Most of the information that we receive is written and we need to understand it. If you can not write so that you are understood, then what you have written is useless. I recently went to the Social Security office because I had a question and was given a sheet of paper that covered the subject. The written information was not clear, I had to go back and get an answer from a worker there. If the person who had written the pamphlet have written so that it could be understood it would have saved a lot of time and trouble. And it was not my lack of knowledge, I have a college degree.
