Before you start your electronic engineering degree there are few things to you might know. Actually factors I mentioned here is commonly applicable for most of students in the world. I am following my electronic engineering degree offered by Sheffield Hallam University, UK. Therefore people who live in European countries can get the maximum advantage of this hub. Though you do not follow these factors before you start your graduate school life, you can complete your degree successfully. But this will be helpful to get an idea what are the areas we should familiar in order to successes in your electronic engineering degree. Let’s see what the major factors are.

  • Good mathematical background

Actually this is a must. You should know basic mathematical skills and specially ability to deal with differentiation, integration, trigonometry problems. In my country we learnt differentiation, integration in secondary school at A/L. There will be separate modules to cover mathematics in your degree. So You will learn these stuff again to sharpen your skills. Not only differentiation and integration, trigonometry there are lots of topics you have to cover in your degree level such as matrices, vectors, probability, differential equations, algebra, complex numbers etc. But most of the times we have to involved with differentiation and integration. In the latter part of these mathematics modules you have to deal with Laplace transform, Z transform, Fourier analysis too.

  • You should have computer skills

In your degree you have to always deal with computers. You have to submit technical reports for most of laboratory sessions. You have to deal with computer software such as Matlab, Orcad, Multisim and so on. Definitely you have to use internet to complete assignments, homework. Here specially I suggest to deal with Microsoft word and you will be guided to use other software during your course.

  • Ability to work as a team

During your Electronic Engineering degree you will have to complete some assignments and laboratory sessions as a group. You have to communicate with your team members and work with them together. Actually you do not want to be prepared for this, but you have to experience in your degree.

  • General knowledge on basic electrical/electronic principles

You learned Kirchhoff laws, definitions of resistance, capacitance and other basics in your secondary/ high school. Definitely you have to use them in your degree level too.


  • Do some searches in google to learn about basics in electronic engineering.
  • Read books which are related to electronic engineering.
  • Experience the software tools such as Matlab, Multisim, Orcad and C language which are highly used in electronic engineering courses.

I guess I didn’t miss any other important factor to mention here. So thank you for reading this hub. Have a nice day.
