well if you end up working mainly in maintenance and operation, then most of what you have learned are useless..but if you are into real engg works, (or at least teaching) then what you have learned may not be adequate.
Working in a maintenance/operation is not a real engineering works?Wow! I imagined myself having to decide what to do if there's a fault in the Transmission line connected to the 138KV/69KV 100MVA transformer which is connected to the National Grid! Decision plays a vital role in Engineering, it's not guessing! Your decision comes from the fact that you know what you have learned in your lessons.Engineers :R & D (Research and Development)SalesTeachingManagingOperationMaintenanceConstructionand many more...Engineers are jack of all trades.
design my own microprocessor and name it PARANZ 5.66 (gigahertz what can i say ), etc.
If only our government will give more importance to R & D .ako rin balak ko gumawa ng "transmission line" na walang linya... hehehe
parang "wireless extension wire" ?? hehe
well, you have a strong point there. what i have in mind is something like this, im an ECE and i want to design computers not merely repair,design and build cellphones, implement my own bluetooth transmitters, design a digital IC, create conformal antennas used in planes, build my own network router (not operate), implement embedded systems, design my own microprocessor and name it PARANZ 5.66 (gigahertz what can i say ), etc.engg mainly is all about creating something and thats what i would like to do. Though in the end the definition of engg works depends on once's current perspective, and thats ok with me
kung meron ganitong engg work dito sa pinas, sigurado mabibilang lang.sa semicon industry, ang malapit dito e ung test development. (software and hardware ang involve)
Hopefully the govt will do something about this to address the problems of the electronics engg education dito sa pinas. I have recently heard they, the govt, are giving more budget sa CHED specifically to improve the field of MICROELECTRONICS, pero sana more effort pa. kulang talaga eh..
ok naman ako dito sa current work ko. naaapply ko naman mga pinag-aralan ko pwera lang yung mga Rizal, History, Psychology. hehehehe uwi na ako.... nagagalit na gf ko sabi nya panay daw OT ko baka may babae daw ako dito sa office
