What should I do for an EE career?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I'm not even old enough to get a job yet and I'm not sure if this is the right place to ask but, does anyone have recommendations for online courses or websites I could visit if I want to become an electrical engineer and maybe work with GPUs?

Depending on your age, maybe look for internships or small jobs at local computer shops?

 

On my 16th birthday I'm applying for a part-time job at Microcenter no doubt about it.

Mechanical Engineering student here. Electrical is alot of math and math theory. Spend your time time making sure your algebra (most mistakes in your sciences classes will be made here), geometry (you'll forget a lot of this by college) and calculus is top notch.

I'm taking geometry right now and will be taking calculus in my Junior year of high school. I'll make sure to focus on those.
