crust said:UT Austin would NOT be a good choice then. Most of the classes (particularly graduate level) are theory though they almost always have a project component. They are usually simulates this, or design this, etc. I had one where you had to find the transfer function of an RC filter. Sounded easy at the time, but they included all of the parasitic resistances and capacitances which made the problem time consuming. The idea was how to model systems actual behavior vs. the typical design behavior.

In on of my classes we designed an Opamp from scratch - I have a much greater understanding about how they work after trying to design one. (Our opamp ended up having several watts of quiecent power - gives you a whole new respect for those uA amps that you can buy)

TheAnimus said:yeh i am loving the Cybernetics bits of my course, but the Computer Science bits are, well, without whishing to be rude to the lecturer, she likes delphi, she shouldn't be allowed near a computer on principle.
