I couldnt find anything that i wanted to post on at the moment, so i figured i would just start a thread here to say hello. I stumbled on the all about circuits site a year ago. Then the summer hit and i completely forgot. I remembered again and checked it out. So today, i figured i would join the forum. I am a college student and I like 19 hours before having my bachelor's in EE. I am working full time in a co-op position at the moment. Our college has this program where you can work in an actual engineering job before you graduate. You work one semester then go to school the next. You do this for two consecutive years. I said no at first, but after 3 ½ solid years of engineering, i was about keel over from mental exhaustion. I got a job at a semiconductor research place. I do super secret stuff It has definately helped me in deciding who i want to work for when i graduate. My family never talks to me about work much, because when i mention wafers, fabs, SEMs, doping, probes, or devices they just give me that blank stare... Its hard to explain what i do to people who have never worked in a fab or on a design project. I believe my favorite subject would have to be analog circuits. I want to work somewhere where I can design, build, and test circuits.
