I've got a choice between two types of Electronic Engineering degrees, as the title says.
One goes the general route, basics of electricity, analog electronic, digital electronic, measuring stuff, some microprocessor basics, digital signals, operational amplifiers, PLCs, Combinational and Sequential Logic...
The other one (due to me being a web-developer with experience) would likely let me start at the middle of year two, with a lot of these basics skipped. I'd cover digital signal processing, data communications, microprocessor architecture (8-bit, 32-bit) and programming, operating systems (RTOS), programmable logic technology and embedded programming (maybe I left something out, but that's the bulk). There are some projects to be done and some mathematics.
I don't know what to choose, I'm mainly interested in embedded programming, but I'd hate to be an Electronic Engineer without a proper grounding in all the basics of Electronic. Wouldn't feel good when telling someone my title and field I'm in. I also wouldn't like my future choices to be too narrowed down because of such education. Embedded systems are only a subset of electronics, if I'm not mistaken. On the other hand, are the basics of Electronics so important to be a good embedded systems programmer?
