Electrical Engineers (EEs) require various software packages for modeling circuits, devices and systems. In general, Matlab is mandatory for math and system related courses while SPICE is required for circuit courses. Other packages (such as LabView, Express PCB, VHDL, Powerworld Ansoft Designer, Psim, iasm and imagej) may be necessary for some EE courses.
