This question already has an answer here:
I am confused on what SE sites should I ask that question, should I ask this here or in electrical engineering SE? It seems that this question is not fit on both sites.
Right now I am in the field of programming (client - server using serial and tcp/ip) with a degree of information technology and due to certain events I am obligated to study electrical engineering course. I am thinking about the benefits of having a good programming background if I go to the field of electrical engineering.
