Answer by Dr Sandra Cruz-Pol
You don't need to know coding in many electronics engineering careers. It depends on the specific job and application. But coding is useful in most engineering or even non-engineering fields nowadays. If you don't like it, don't let that get you away from engineering. There are many other engineering 'shores' that are mostly hardware or other tasks. But don't be afraid to try it, you might like it. For me it's like a game of logic. :D
