So you are thinking about pursuing a degree in Electrical Engineering. Play this simulator to see if you have the perseverance. I was never able to get hope over 50.
A humorous look at the road to a PhD through a text based random number generator game. From Mianzhi Wang
I obtained my Ph.D. from Washington University in St. Louis in 2018 and joined Google by the end of 2018. My research advisor is Dr. Arye Nehorai in the Center for Sensor Signal and Information Processing (CSSIP). My research involves statistical signal processing, optimization, and machine learning. You can view my publications here. I enjoy the process of discovery, creation, and puzzle solving 💡.
I am also a classical guitar player 🎸. If you are curious, you can find my unprofessional recordings here.

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
