Where can I learn the skills to...

develop hardware like Apogee, Neve, etc?

I have a budding interest in this field and would like to know how I can further my knowledge. What major would be most appropiate? Electrical Engineering? Say I wanted to work for Apogee in developing their hardware products, where can I learn the skills needed?

Thanks for your advice!

That would be electrical engineering.. there are many great schools
out there. Unless you were pre-wired at the factory like Massenburg ;-)

Electrical Engineering is probably where you want to be. It also depends on what particular focus within those products you want. Do you want to be designing new circuits for gear or writing the software for gear (where applicable). For hardware type stuff, a circuits concentration within EE is good. For software type stuff a DSP concentration is probably more useful. Regardless of what route you take, I would recommend taking as many courses as possible in the area of computer engineering, which is essentially writing software for hardware. It is useful knowledge. I hope that helps/make sense.
