I make no claims to know what companies are interested in... but for improving yourself, there's nothing quite like working on projects of your own, outside of school. You didn't mention anything like that.Also how does one misuse CAD? (Also lol @ UK: "further maths")
How are your soldering skills? Any engineer likes having someone to build to modify circuits.How are you with electronic instruments like DVM, O'scope, Function generator?Can you read a schematic?Do you understand most of what is in data sheets?Do you know Ohm's Law and how and when to use it?How about the various serial protocols like RS232, SPI, I2C, synchronous verses asynchronous?Could you use an O'scope to decode and verify the data and timing.Can you draw a schematic for a transistor switch using NPN, PNP, Pch & Nch MOSFET?How about some of the many micro-controllers? Any assembler or C language with them?These would be a few of the topics I would look for in an entry level tech or an intern. I like getting my own coffee.
