Cal Poly BSEL 1964-1969
I double majored in Electronic Engineering and Physics. (The EE degree was reserved for people specializing in motors and generators. The EL degree was for people specializing in such things as device physics, communication theory, or analog circuits.)
Due to the school issuing separate diplomas for each major as soon as the requirements were met, the army got me when I was two quarters away from the BS in Physics.
I took the maximum allowed course load all 4 quarters of 5 years resulting in my getting 50% more units than the minimum graduation requirements. These were in math, physics, and engineering.
I was inducted into the Sigma Pi Sigma physics honor society.
Stanford MSEE 1971-1972
I took the analog circuits specialty with the two breadth areas in device physics and communication theory.
Stanford Ph.D. EE 1972-1976
I continued the analog specialty courses. My thesis topic was analog integrated circuit variable gain amplifiers. This resulted in the first published work on ion implanted JFETs.
I also graded homework for Malcolm McWhorter and filled in teaching his classes when he was out of town.
I was inducted into the Sigma Xi honor society.
