Ask Slashdot: Being an Electrical Engineer?

sandman83 (1550133) writes "I will be going back to a local college this Fall to prepare myself for the Electrical Engineering program at Idaho State University. I am planning on concentrating on motherboard design and trace layout for my junior and senior years, and the University uses the Cadence Allegro software for their PCb and IC design classes.

My question is. What should any future student expect and experience through an EE program, and how best should those students prepare themselves before and during? And what are your experiences with PCB design, and the importance of math during the design phase, and how fun can it be once someone gets used to the complex software? Also, if anyone can recommend any additional classes that I, or any prospective student might want to take outside of the regular course work, and explain the benefits of taking that course; for example, additional computer programming classes.

Oh, what is the best way to prepare for Calculus?"
