So far, in the 6 years since I graduated, most of the electronics graduates
I've met that really knew their stuff hardware and firmware were
Romanian. Apparently it's only the best graduates who get chances
to study abroad, and many of them want to get abroad, so there is
pretty fierce competition.
When I heard what these guys did for their degree course, I was
embarrassed about what the average (and even above-average) Irish
EE graduate comes out knowing...
