    How about an electrical engineering degree from MIT?

    "One year after the launch of its pilot programme, MIT on Monday night quietly published everything from class syllabuses to lecture videos for 500 courses through its OpenCourseWare initiative, an ambitious project that it hopes will spark a Web-based revolution in the way universities share information."

    Talking of MIT, has anyone downloaded "HYPERSCORE"?

    Thanks for the head's up, Tony:dude I used to live in Back Bay right across the Charles River from MIT, but have since moved a bit further away.

    MIT has never felt closer:D

    If I remember correctly, young Master Smoot got smashed and his buddies immortalised him by laying him end-to-end across the bridge until
    they'd measured the whole thing off in Smoots:D

    I would have thought that out nation's best and brightest engineering minds would have measured him once, and then extrapolated their way across the Charles river - then again, what would be the fun in that?;)

    I miss Boston - and Fenway Park. Thanks for the recollection, Tony. :dude

    I have a diploma from MIT-of course it is my father's. BS Metallurgy 1941. He did it all on ROTC and scholarships. Smartest person I ever met, too.

    He sure knew his properties of metals.

    Get an EE degree to understand a tube amplifier. That sounds like the kinda' blockheaded thing I'd do. Too bad I'm already busy studying Latin and Greek to learn how to read The Aeneid and The Odyssey.

    Very cool!

    I downloaded some of the EE quizzes......

    Stuff I never thought I knew...I apparently know!

    Stuff that I know darn well I knew....I couldn't remember at all!

    Time marches on, I suppose.

    The content has probably changed in the 6+ years since the OP posted in September 2003..........

    Best, Pete.
