"you are right that today electrical engineering is all about different softwares like AUTOCAD , Netsim, Boson etc but not having the deep knowledge and just knowing these softwares can make you successfull but one cant be a good electrical engineer without having deep understanding of all the workings etc"

Debara, since there is no coding nothing to worry. peripheral usage knowledge is sufficient to play around.

Yes Nelso things and trends are definitely changing every now and then we come across different MIT students either working on different projects or trying to invent or innovate something.

All good points; many educators have reversed the trend with revised curricula, in an effort to improve the engineers they are delivering to industry.

Nelso I do remember the times when universities produced just theoratical engineers but now the trand is changing and more and more practicle and innovative engineers are comming into the market because universities give them free hand to there creativity innovation etc which is one of the basic requirement .

Yes Charles you are absolutely correct I have come across soo many engineers who themselves took the initiative to learn the soft skills and I myself is one of them. I donno why in past engineers were not at all good in thete communication but I am glad that now we are getting awareness that no matterwe are engineer doctor or journalist our soft skills should be good because this is actually the key to success .

Chuck there are many things we engineer dont learn during our universities or schooling the major part we learn is during our professional lives , experiences etc . Because entering in to practicle lives help us gain experience and hand on on different things and issues .

Naperlou , you are absolutely correct it was a time when engineers were not good in communicating there ideas and thoughts and they usually had to ask someone to write there ideas or projects . But now Communication has become a basic skill in every profession even there are technical writers students who have done engineering have taken the profession of technical writing which involves communicating the thoughts of engineers on paper or reports.

Battar , programming is not the main or the core part of electrical engineering but  E engineers are required to write softwares when working with microcontrollers , motors and switching systems etc .

For an electrical engineer his physics should be strong as we know that this engineering is all about electromagnetic forces , wavelenghts etc so to be a good electrical engineer one should have strong concepts of physics .

Iterative design — the cycle of prototyping, testing, analyzing, and refining a product — existed long before additive manufacturing, but it has never been as efficient and approachable as it is today with 3D printing.
People usually think of a time constant as the time it takes a first order system to change 63% of the way to the steady state value in response to a step change in the input -- it’s basically a measure of the responsiveness of the system. This is true, but in reality, time constants are often not constant. They can change just like system gains change as the environment or the geometry of the system changes.
At its core, sound is a relatively simple natural phenomenon caused by pressure pulsations or vibrations propagating through various mediums in the world around us. Studies have shown that the complete absence of sound can drive a person insane, causing them to experience hallucinations. Likewise, loud and overwhelming sound can have the same effect. This especially holds true in manufacturing and plant environments where loud noises are the norm.
The tech industry is no stranger to crowdsourcing funding for new projects, and the team at element14 are no strangers to crowdsourcing ideas for new projects through its design competitions. But what about crowdsourcing new components?
It has been common wisdom of late that anything you needed to manufacture could be made more cost-effectively on foreign shores. Following World War II, the label “Made in Japan” was as ubiquitous as is the “Made in China” version today and often had very similar -- not always positive -- connotations. Along the way, Korea, Indonesia, Malaysia, and other Pacific-rim nations have each had their turn at being the preferred low-cost alternative to manufacturing here in the US.
