Professor You: I disagree with your cons. You made it sounded like being good at math and life-long learning are bad things. I agree with you that to be a successful electrical engineer, one needs to understand Calculus, Differential Equation, and Statistics. Technology changes rapidly that life-long learning is a requirement in order to stay relevant.
Brayden: As an electrical engineer, I learned critical thinking and problem solving. All these critical transferable life skills that set me up as a successful professional in various disciplines. I agree with you that getting a BS / MS degree in electrical engineering is difficult. Anything in life worth pursuing is difficult.
Jackson recommends the following next steps:
- Enroll in advanced math courses (pre-calculus, calculus, statistics)
- Enroll in physics including Labs
- Visit local engineering companies and talk to electrical engineers
